1. Use it as a pet repellent
Cats hate the smell of Vicks! Apply the rub to legs of furniture to keeps cats from scratching—or anywhere else they shouldn’t linger. This method is much cheaper than purchasing a pet repellent on Amazon.com for $12.80! Is there a favorite rug in your home where your pet always has an accident? Place an open jar of Vicks VapoRub in the location and out of your pet’s reach. Think of all the money you’ll be saving since you won’t have to buy puppy pads!
2. Add it to your humidifier
Many humidifiers have an aromatherapy compartment. Add a small amount of Vicks VapoRub to the compartment and have it circulate all night for easy breathing while you sleep.
3. Use it as an insect repellant
Apply a thin coat of Vicks VapoRub behind your ears, neck and elbows before going outside to keep insects away! No more expensive Off! spray will be needed.
4. Heal bruises quickly
Spread Vicks VapoRub in a thin layer over a bruise and add salt. Believe it or not, the combination breaks down the blood in the bruise causing it to lighten the discoloration faster.
5. Moisturize dry, cracked heels
Apply a thick slather of Vicks VapoRub to the cracked areas of your feet, cover with a pair of socks, and enjoy quick relief of dry, cracked skin. Remember to exfoliate your feet during your next bath or shower! I love a fancy foot cream, but my budget won’t allow it! Try Vicks VapoRub to save a few bucks!
