    What the hell is wrong with you Bill? I almost took this advice until I read about the side effects.

    "Applying Vicks to your feet provides nighttime cough relief. Generously rub VapoRub all over your feet and cover them with socks. Within moments your cough will subside—in the morning you’ll wake up a new, hacking free woman."

    I can think of a couple of other uses, I'm sure there are many more. Once on a fishing trip I had no grease or oil at the condo we were staying at. I had a fishing reel that was sticking. I opened it up and used some Vicks as reel lube. In a pinch it can be used as a lubricant. I haven't tried this but I am sure it would work, being a petrolium product I imagine a cotton ball or cotton swap soaked in Vicks would make a good fire starter or even a candle or small torch for light.
