Athlete’s Foot: Fungal skin irritations are easily treated by grinding 3 aspirin tablets until they are completely pulverized, and then mixing that powder with talcum powder. Apply to feet two times a day to treat the fungus, and eventually help with the irritation.
Blemishes: Make a paste with some water and powdered aspirin. Apply to blemishes and rinse off after a few minutes with cool water. Soothes the skin, reduces size of blemishes, and lessens redness.
Calluses: To soften hard calluses on your feet grind 5-6 aspirin into a powder and make a paste by adding ½ t. each lemon juice and water. Smear on the callus. Wrap foot in a warm towel and then with a plastic bag to hold the heat and moisture. Relax for at least 10 minutes. Remove the bag and towel and start filing that callus – which by now is nice and soft – with a pumice stone.
Cartilage Bumps from Piercings: After you’re tired of those piercing, sometimes small scars and bumps remain in the nose and ears, however, a paste of lemon juice and crushed aspirin, 2-3 times a day, will make them significantly smaller.
Chlorine Yellow Hair: Dissolve 8-10 aspirin tablets in a glass of water and pour over hair prior to washing. Let soak for 10 minutes. Wash as usual.
Dandruff: Crush two aspirin tablets and mix well with regular shampoo. Leave on the hair for 2-3 minutes before washing.
Ingrown Toenails: Dissolve 20 aspirin in a bathtub of warm water to relieve the pain, swelling and itching from an ingrown toenail.
Mosquito Bites & Bee Stings: Moisten the bite with water and rub an aspirin over the spot to remove the sting and itch.
Nicotine Stained Hands: Crush an aspirin and mix with lemon juice. Rub on stains and they will go away.
Razor Bumps: Mix crushed aspirin with glycerin and water and apply to painful, itchy razor bumps. Relieves the pain and itch and reduces the redness.
Stretchmarks: Gently apply an aspirin paste onto stretchmarks for about five minutes to reduce inflammation and tenderness.
Toothache: If you have a toothache and the dentist’s office is closed, make a paste of aspirin and a little water and pack it on. It will help relieve the pain until help arrive
Note: NEVER take aspirin if it has a vinegary smell as this means it is past its prime.
