Vicks VapoRub was introduced in 1905 with the name Vick's Magic Croup Salve, rebranded in 1912 as VapoRub. The flu epidemic of 1918 increased sales of VapoRub from $900,000 to $2.9 million in just one year. My parents used it on me when I was a kid, and I still use it on myself today and my kids, that stuff has really been a life saver. Love those vapors!
I found some uses that you may or not know about Vicks VapoRub, alot of these surprised me too!
