Resolved Question

Did you know? If you rub fresh garlic under the soles of your feet you taste it in your mouth?

Yes. True. So it follows that if you rub vicks under the soles of your feet you will stop coughing. Try it! It really works. 70 mths ago

Best Answer

Garlic and onions contain a very mild toxin which seeps through pretty much all membrane in the body. The toxins can permeate the cell walls of pretty much every area of your body, so if you've been eating enough garlic / onion, others will notice! :) The downside is that when the toxins breach your brain's membrane, it directly begins having an effect on your perception and may lead to neurological effects similar to alcohol. (though usually a much lesser effect)

Must be a big turnon for those of us who have a foot fetish and indulge in a little "toe sucking!" :-)

No

That is so weird! Luckily I didn't taste anything when I accidently stepped into doggy doo! Maybe the garlic oils play and greasy Vicks play a role... That's worth some experimenting - now where's that olive oil, vaseline, shoe polish

Will definately try the Vicks, heard about that one before.But for now I'll stick to 'consuming' garlic the old fashioned way.

That is so true - imagine what we're going to do the next time we step in dog-poop while barefoot.

I always rub vicks under the soles of my daughter. I just did it because My Mom told me to. Never knew why, now I know.

This news to me, but hell, I want to know who decided to try rubbing garlic on the soles of their feet the first time!

70 mths ago

Don't know about the garlic, but the Vicks works. I use it on my son when he's got a bad cough, especialy at night. Rub vicks under his soles and put on socks, and whalla, the cough eases in a couple of minutes and we all get some sleep!
