Chicken More Home Remedies

Comment: I just received the email below and I'm curious to know if the
stated 'remedies' are genuine.

-----------------------------------------

Good remedies - check them out

Useful little tips!!!

Eliminate ear mites. All it takes is a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil in
your cat's ear... massage it in, then clean with a cotton ball. Repeat
daily for 3 days. The oil soothes the cat's skin, smothers the mites, and
accelerates healing.

Kills fleas instantly... Dawn Dishwashing Liquid does the trick. Add a
few drops to your dog's bath and shampoo the animal thoroughly. Rinse well
to avoid skin irritations. Good-bye fleas.

Rainy day cure for dog odor: Next time your dog comes in from the rain,
simply wipe down the animal with Bounce or any dryer sheet, instantly
making your dog smell springtime fresh.

Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache
pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by
traditional pain relievers?

Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with
mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids
peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.

Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1
cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a
massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles.

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take
1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two
tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms.
Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost
instantly-even though the product was never been advertised for this use.

Honey remedy for skin blemishes... cover the blemish with a dab of honey
and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin
sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

Listerine therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail
fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine M outhwash. The powerful
antiseptic leaves your toenails look ing healthy again.!

Easy eyeglass protection... to prevent the screws in eyeglasses from
loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to
the threads of the screws before tightening them.

Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... if menacing bees, wasps,
hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the
insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground
instantly.

Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the
splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter
sticks to the dried glue.

Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure... cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste
as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the
boil to a head.

Balm for broken blisters... to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few
drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic.

Vinegar to heal bruises... soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply
it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds
up the healing process.

Quaker Oats for fast pain relief... it's not for breakfast any more! Mix
2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the
microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands
for soothing relief from arthritis pain.

If you send this to 10 people and only one of them doesn't know about
this, then it was worth it.
