    I'll keep that in mind. Hubby's severance check has yet to appear, and I don't get paid till Friday, so right now I'm carrying around a roll of TP. Not too dignified, but it works!

    TP has been my friend for more than a month. :D And vicks is awesome. Our grandma's knew what they were doing. lol

    Hope you guys don't have any trouble getting over it. Pamper yourselves and feel better soon.

    I remember countless nights going to bed with vicks rubbed on my chest and then a towel pinned around me. It worked!

    My mom used Mentholatum, and also put it under the eyes and on the forehead.

    Was that someone on here who said to put it on the soles of your feet? I can't remember. Fuzzy from cold pills...

    The Vicks tissues are great...so long as you don't try to clean your glasses with them. Makes a real smeary mess.

    There is a camp that believes that rubbing vapo-rub on the soles of your feet and then putting on heavy socks helps with cold symptoms.

    I haven't tried it because the skin on my feet is so sensitive that it'd likely peel off if I tried that.

    Pootie wanted to know if Cloe got her text?
    Grandma wanted to know if Pootie sent a text possibly eluding to the fact that I'm not right in the head? Hmmmm.:tongue:

    Yes, it was me! Vicks on the soles of your feet at the first onset of a cold or chest congestion helps to clear it up faster and helps with coughing as well. It does work. There is something about the soles of your feet absorbing it fast.

    I don't think I have any actual Vicks in the house. I wonder if it would work if I stuffed a couple of the Vicks kleenex in my socks (That's SOCKS!!!!) and then went to bed???

    Star.....yes...Cloe got Pootie's text and no, she didn't say a single word about Grandma not being right.
