CDC advises tweezers for removing ticks -- "Avoid folklore remedies such as "painting" the tick with nail polish or petroleum jelly, or using heat to make the tick detach from the skin. Your goal is to remove the tick as quickly as possible--not waiting for it to detach."

Centers for Disease Control: Proper Tick Removal: tweezers pulling a tick away from the skin in an upward motion
From May through July, people get tick bites and tickborne diseases more than any other time of year in the United States, but many may not know they are at risk. In recognition of Lyme Disease Awareness month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reminds Americans to learn about this common tickborne disease and take steps to protect themselves if they live in or visit areas with Lyme disease activity. Learn more: http://1.usa.gov/10q2eex
HOW TO REMOVE A TICK: W/ twizers, grasp the tick as close to the skin's surface as possible. Pull upward w/ steady pressure. Don't twist/jerk the tick; this can cause the mouth to break off in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts / tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily w/ clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal. After removing the tick, clean the bite area and your hands w/ rubbing alcohol, iodine scrub, or soap & water. #CDC #tick #removal

Twelve Surprising Uses for Vicks VapoRub, like us pinners can be surprised any more!!!
Headache Relief, Bugs Bites, Health Remedies, Vick Vaporub, Cough Relief, Vapor Rubbed, Twelv Surprise, 12 Surprise, Who Knew
12 surprising uses for Vicks Vaporub. I love this on the feet for cough relief, but I had no clue about headache relief on the temples!
Twelve Surprising Uses for Vicks VapoRub - who knew An added use is rub it on bug bites to relieve the itch and heal them much quicker.
Uses for Vapor Rub 1. Decongest Your Chest The most common use of Vicks is to decongest your chest and throat area. When applied to the upper chest, it provides excellent relief of cough and congestion symptoms. 2. On Your Tootsies 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. 3. Achy Breaky Muscles Vicks relieves sore, overworked muscles. It increases circulation and provides almost instant aid. Use a generous portion and apply it all over the aching area. (Be sure to warn your bedmate as the stench can ensure a nookie-free night.) 4. Get Rid of Nasty Nail Fungus Rub VapoRub on your toenails if you suspect you have a fungus. Within days, the nail will turn dark—this means the Vicks is killing the fungus. As your toenail grows out, the dark part will grow off and you will have fungus-free feet. Keep applying the ointment over a period of two weeks to fully cleanse nail beds of any remaining bacteria. 5. Stop Your Cat from Scratching 6. Pet Pee-Pee Deterrent If your dog or cat is not yet potty trained, put an open bottle of Vicks on the area he or she likes to mark as their territory. The smell will discourage them from lifting their legs and wetting your rug. 7. Headaches Be Gone Rub a small amount of Vicks VapoRub on your temples and forehead to help relieve headaches. The mentholated scent will release pressure in your head and instantly relieve pain. 8. Humidify Your Sleep Vicks VapoRub can be used in special types of humidifiers and vaporizers. Ensure your humidifier has an aromatherapy compartment before using. The humidifier will circulate Vicks throughout the air and keep you breathing easy all night long. 9. Paper Cuts and Splinters To prevent infection and speed up healing time, dab a small amount of Vicks on any small cut or splinter. 10. Ticks and Bugs If you get bitten by a tick, apply Vicks immediately. The strong odor might help get the critter to release itself and stop bugging you. 11. Reek-free Racehorses Professional racers smother VapoRub under the nostrils of racehorses on race day. The strong stench deters the stallions from the alluring odor of the female pony and keeps them focused on the race. 12. Go Away Mosquitoes Vicks wards off mosquitoes. Apply small dabs of Vicks VapoRub to your skin and clothes and mosquitoes will steer clear. If you do get bitten, apply Vicks to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve itching. 10. Ticks and Bugs If you get bitten by a tick, apply Vicks immediately. The strong odor might help get the critter to release itself and stop bugging you. 11. Reek-free Racehorses Professional racers smother VapoRub under the nostrils of racehorses on race day. The strong stench deters the stallions from the alluring odor of the female pony and keeps them focused on the race. 12. Go Away Mosquitoes Vicks wards off mosquitoes. Apply small dabs of Vicks VapoRub to your skin and clothes and mosquitoes will steer clear. If you do get bitten, apply Vicks to the area and cover it with a Band-Aid to relieve itching. According to WebMD, there have been a few complications in children when Vicks is used inappropriately. A few children reacted negatively and ended up hospitalized when Vicks was applied directly under the nose. Though this is extremely rare and only happens to those who are sensitive to Vicks, consumers should use caution when applying it to the face or on young children. Even though its strong stench may cost me a few friendships, I am definitely heading to the nearest drugstore to stock up on this little blue smelly bottle.
Use vinegar to repair a rusty cast iron pan--Simply soak your pan in a mix of half plain white vinegar and half water for an hour. Then use an abrasive pad to scour away any rust on the pan. Once all the rust is removed, you’ll just have to season the cast iron pan again and it will be good as new. To season, coat the skillet with cooking oil and bake in 350° F oven for an hour.
