ever try Rubbing Alcohol?
3 Replies
dwilmoth - July 6

My in-laws use rubbing alcohol for every ache and pain, something I had never heard of (even though it says it on the bottle). So one day after my first water aerobics my calves were killing me, my hubby asked if I wanted to try the alcohol. I was skeptic. One calf he rubbed the alcohol the other calf he used Bio Freeze. In about 10 min the calf with the alcohol felt warm and loose. Then the next morning it was a lot less tight than the other. I was amazed. Some nights hubby rubs me down almost all over, it really helps me. Plus it's cheap you can get 2 bottles for $1 at the dollar store. I haven't tried it in a tub yet but I think I will sometime. Just something I wanted to share that helps me.

I never heard that before either, but if you think about the name - "rubbing" alcohol, I guess it does sound like that is what it is for. I will try some on my feet tonight and let you know if that helps.

I tried the rubbing alcohol and it worked better than Biofreeze, medicmoist, or any other muscle rub I have ever tried. Cheap too. Something that works and is also cheap. Wow.
