    Another thread made me remember this and I may have posted before...if so, it's been a few years at least. :rofl:

    I take about 3 good ol' cheap aspirin in the palm of my hand. I add a few drops of water to them. Note: you cannot use any of the coated aspirins to do this! After a few seconds, I mush the drops of water into the aspirin and get a very coarse scrub. Then I scrub my face and rinse with water.

    The aspirin not only exfoliates, it helps clear up acne/blackhead/whiteheads/pimples and will knock down some of the shine on oily skin. I don't have oily skin now but I still use the aspirin. The salicylic acid in aspirin is one of the active ingredients of many acne medications.

    Yes.

    Your face peels off the next day.

    (But, people in L.A. pay a lot of money to have that happen.)

    Here's mine -

    Do NOT use Lava Soap as bath soap, when covered with motor oil or transmission fluid.

    Quick Orange Peel Vinegar Cleaner:
    Orange peels, vinegar in a quart jar, let sit for 10 days or so…strain out the liquid and use as an all-purpose cleaner. Easy, cheap, natural, smells good!

    I was once told years ago that if aspirin was submitted for FDA approval it would fail, and miserably. YMMV. HH

    I think it has been approved by the FDA?

    The same is true of many medications from the 60s and before. They pulled darvocet off the market because of it(and I'm still pissed about it, it worked good on my pain). I mean penicillin causes allergic reactions in so many people, sulfas do as well the list goes on and on about side affects that were never fully realized. It can take 100 million dollars to bring a drug to market, that's why american medications cost so much.

    They banned propoxyphene for a reason. Maybe if people weren't so sue-happy in this country and understood and accepted the risks then we would have more choices. Would you sign a waiver acknowledging that you may develop heart problems and maybe even die if you keep taking propoxyphene?

    Yes, many people are allergic to penicillin and whatnot. There are alternatives.

    If you look at the amount of people who used it vs how many developed issues you're talking under .5%. So yes I would sign a waver, but we weren't even given that option, I had side affects to levaquin including tendon pain which caused it to be black listed. However another drug in the same class can cause the same problem but it hasn't been black listed because it's a generation newer.
