What the heck? Now Vapo-rub is not on the shelves

At our VERY large grocery store shelves were empty. Got the last jar at $Tree.

I saw plenty on Amazon.  I don't know if it available locally, as I never buy it.

 

My mother chased us as kids to smear that on our chests.  I hated it.

 

I don't think I have ever bought a jar in my lifetime.  I was traumatized by it.  Just kidding.  I am glad you found some.

Various stores are out of the oddest things and sometimes I'll go somewhere else and the shelves are stocked full of it.

 

I know I posted this elsewhere but it is very hard to find coffee creamer around here, of all things.

Both Kroger and CVS make a generic equivalent product, which is similar.  Try one of those stores, if there's one near you.

I've been playing hopscotch with Heinz baked beans and Clamato juice (my secret addiction).

 Vicks vapor rub  now have some that a patch that you stick on your clothes  The old warm air humidifiers used to have a port where you could put some of the  rub .

I was raised by my grandmother always putting on Vicks Vapor Rub on me when ill, and till this day. If I have a stuffy nose or congestion in my chest I will rub it on my chest and in my nostrils to help me breathe. 

 

I always keep a bottle in my medicine cabinet. Check out Amazon if you need more.

I use Vick's all year round.  At night I rub some on my hands, elbow, and feet.  Works great to keep all baby soft.  

I also put a little under my nose to help me sleep.  In the summer, it helps to keep mosquitoes away. I purchase it in Costco.
