Cowboy's First Aid Kit


Recommended Posts

  • A little whiskey works as a liniment for your horse's sore legs . . . not to mention your sore anything.
     
  • For abrasions, first clean the wound, then apply petroleum jelly which acts as a protective shield and speeds healing.   Spider webs (usually found in a barn) also helps heal a wound.
     
  • Bee stings can be treated with mud.  Baking soda will neutralize the bee serum.
     
  • Wasp bites can be soothed with vinegar.
     
  • Put a copper penny on a bee or wasp sting and the wound won't hurt, swell, or itch.
     
  • Bruises should be treated with a cold compress first, and then witch hazel or slices of raw potato.
     
  • New boots?  Pour boiling water into them, then pour out.   Put on the socks you intend to wear with them and put the boots on.  Let the boots dry on your feet so they conform to your bunions.

I wonder if they would have included duct tape, if it had been invented back then.  :smile:

 

Your comment prompted me to look into the history of duct tape.   Google says:

 

Duct tape was originally invented by Johnson & Johnson's Permacel division during WWII for the military. The military specifically needed a waterproof tape that could be used to keep moisture out of ammunition cases. This is why the originally Duct tape came only in army green.

 

The things we learn . . . :rotfl:
