Miracle Cure!

Some time ago - I don't even remember when or where - I read that putting Vicks on the bottom of your feet will stop a cough. So one time? At band camp? When Hubby had a really bad cough? We decided to try it, so maybe he would not cough all night and keep me up. I slathered the bottoms of his feet with the Vicks, put a pair of socks on him, and lo and behold it worked like a charm! I don't know why it works, but it works!

But the amazing thing about it is that it also keeps him from SNORING! I'm SERIOUS! The cough went away, but so did the snoring! So now? I'm putting Vicks on that dude's feet. Every. Night. And finally I can get a good night's sleep!

I read it on Fussy's website. I should tell my SIL to do that to The Brother in hopes of stopping the snoring. Glad it worked!

It does work, believe me. And a very happy (belated) birthday to you.

That's cool! Wish I knew that when one of my delightful children used to snore. I'll keep that in mind in case it ever comes back.

I want Bubba to try it, but he says no.

We've tried it on Drew in the past, but I'd completely forgotten. Thanks for reminding me!

hmm...I should try that on my son. He snores very loud! And he's only 7! He also coughs a lot when he sleeps, especially during allergy season. Thanks for the tip!

I never knew! I can do Vick's...I actually think it smells good.

Take care,

Interesting! My husband already snores too much! So I'll just kick him out if he gets a cough.

Ok...really?! C'mon...I need some scientific reasoning.

Oh who cares...I've got it - I'll try it!

I'm stealing this idea!!!! Guess what, its not even for my hubby. Its for my girlfriend! When we do the Girls Weekend thing, we have a major snorer in the room.... and we have some light sleepers (I'm neither, I hope). Thanks for the head's up.

Not sure if mentioned before. But I'm a Bubba's sister, too! :)

Bwaaaaaaaahahahahahaa - I always wondered if this worked for coughing. It works for snoring too? Dude, I've got to go stock up on some Vicks!

Crazy week and I am trying to catch up with my favorite blogs! I may have to use this tip on sweet hubby who is prone to snoring but gets upset if he knows he does. Do you guess I could put it on him after he goes to sleep and not wake him up?
