Yesterday I challenged you to clean out your medicine cabinets, look for products that are recalled (Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl, etc.), throw out anything expired, and make sure that everything was out of the kids' reach. To make it fun, I said we'd have a contest to see who could find the oldest product.
When I asked her why she was holding on to her great-grandparents' medicine, Beckett said, "Actually, it was meant to be decor, and during the Great New Year's Resolution detox (of last year) it went into the cabinet. (I have tooth powder in there too. Still with stuff in it:) But it is about 10 years newer than the plasters."
The label on the plasters says, "If the skin is delicate, as in children or many women, place a strip of wet muslin between the skin and the plaster." Cute!
According to Wikipedia, mustard plasters are used to "stimulate healing" on the chest or abdomen. Illnesses that call for a plastering of mustard include "common colds, runny noses, rheumatism and problems with the respiratory system." This line cracked me up:
"The paste resembles the Chinese mustard sauce served with eggrolls in many American Chinese restaurants."
So Beckett, if you have any 100 year old eggrolls lying around, you are all set!
You guys are fun! What should we clean out next?
