Lil, inspired me to start this one! Thanks, Lil! What sorts of old-fashioned homemade remedies did you rely on in your home? One that I relied on in my home was diaper rash powder for when my kids got a sore bottom. I used to use lightly browned white flour along with cornstarch, which worked wonders for diaper rash. Cheap, chemical-free, and healthy. Anyone remember old-fashioned mustard plasters?
