A Burn Remedy?

Apr 6th 2011 at 8:47 PM

 

A friend told me this story:

A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just as I was screaming from burning my hand while cooking on a grill, and asked me if I had some plain old flour...I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He said to keep my hand in the flour for 10 mins. which I did. He said that in Vietnam , this guy was on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out...well, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had a blister!!!!

SOOOO, long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 mins, pulled it out and had not even a red mark or a blister and absolutely NO PAIN. Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself.  I use the flour and never ONCE have I ever had a red spot, a burn or a blister!
*cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour.

Miracle, if you ask me. Keep a bag of white flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did. I even burnt my tongue and put the flour on it for about 10 minutes and the pain was gone and no burn.  Try it! BTW, don't run your burn area under cold water first, just put it right into the flour for 10 minutes and experience a miracle!
