Oh The Wonders Of Chocolate


This tip was told to me by a customer at my workplace. If you have a bruise you want to have fade quickly, melt some chocolate and cover the bruise with it. Put a bandage on the site overnight, remove it and wash (lick?) off the chocolate the next morning. The bruise will then, according to her story, be noticeably lighter. I thought this was just an old wives tale so when I got home I looked it up on the internet. Much to my surprise I discovered that the cure is touted on a number of sites. Chocolate, the food of the Gods, is there anything it can't do!

Don't know if I could bear to waste chocolate this way though. What say you Expat?

I imagine if I had chocolate on a bruise, it'd be mysteriously gone the next morning, unless of course I wasn't flexible enough (in which case I'd just be mysteriously sore and tired...)

Obviously, Patty, your friend (and those poor souls on the internet) have been lead astray by Beelzebub and his dark minions. Chocolate is not to be wasted on cosmetic enhancements!

I remember witch hazel! I had a peek at it in Wikipedia and it seems that it does, in fact, have some medicinal properties. Not as many as Windex but still an impressive list.

Actually BD, raw bacon is good for drawing splinters and such out as well as drawing a boil to a head.

White vinegar and news paper cleans windows/glass.

I have a friend who is partial to hot toddies Scout, she uses ginger brandy. Guest, that sounds delicious, but for sipping only.
