32 Interesting Ways To Fully Utilize Your Tub Of Vaseline (And 9 Ways Not To)

The raw material for petroleum jelly was first discovered in 1859 on oil rigs by workers. A young chemist called Robert Chesebrough took the raw material from the oil rig back to his laboratory to refine and explore its potential uses. He discovered that by distilling the lighter, thinner oil products from the rod wax, he could create a light-colored gel. He patented the process, traveled all over New york demonstrating the product by burning his skin with acid or an open flame, then spreading the ointment on his injuries and showing his past injuries healed, he claimed, by his miracle product. In 1870, Chesebrough opened his first factory and called his product Vaseline.

Petroleum jelly melts at 99°F (37°C), flammable when heated to liquid, does not oxidize on exposure to the air and is insoluble in water. Most uses exploit its lubricating, coating and moisturizing potentials. Petroleum jelly isn’t foolproof but the pros outnumber the cons and it’s so versatile. Here are the 10 brilliant uses of petroleum jelly.

  1. Heal Wounds Faster
  2. Petroleum jelly’s effectiveness in accelerating wound healing stems from its sealing effect on cuts and burns, which inhibits germs from getting into the wound and keeps the injured area supple by preventing the skin’s moisture from evaporating. Another great alternative is vinegar.

  3. Prevent Nose Crusting
  4. Petroleum jelly helps combat dried mucus / blood / other discharge that can build up all the way through your nasal cavities back to the sinus and throat areas.

  5. Prevent Nosebleed
  6. Most nosebleeds occur during the winter in cold, dry climates. Cover a Q-tip with it and stick it up your bloody nose.

Vinegar Uses Everyone Should Know Of. Here are 75!

Vinegar is a liquid produced from the fermentation of ethanol in a process that yields its key ingredient, acetic acid. Ninety percent of American Households buy vinegar. The 4 major vinegar uses are for salads, as cooking ingredients, pickling and home canning.

Anyways, I just thought that everyone should know about the usefulness of vinegar other than for the 4 things mentioned above. I’ve put together 75 other things with pictures about everything else that you can do with it. I’d personally suggest using high quality white or organic apple cider vinegar like Heinz’s when trying the below methods. I’d recommend using organic ACV for drinking and topical applications, and white vinegar for the rest.The difference is that white vinegar is made from acetous fermentation of alcohol and apple cider vinegar is made from cider or apple must.

For ingestion or applying externally on your body, get the organic one with the ‘mother’. It’s unpasteurized and contains all the good bacteria your body needs. The BRAGG bottle below is an example.

Types Of Bra You Should Know Of. Here Are 29 Different Designs.

Developed late in the nineteenth century, this feminine icon has since been viewed as a symbol of a girl’s coming of age. The bra does not only covers, supports and elevates the breasts, but also shapes the wearer’s figure. The degree of which the bra frames the breasts varies between style, functionality, fashion and fabric. There are many different types of bra today and most fall into various categories mentioned below.

It is important to know the types of bras available so that you can pick the right one for the right time so as to protect the general health of your breasts.

  1. Adhesive Bra
  2. adhesive type of bra

    A bra which adheres to the breasts. It has no straps or bands of any sort and provide little support to the breasts. This type of bra is intended for backless and strapless fashions. There are two types. There is the disposable paper ones that use a strong adhesive and the reusable ones that use silicone that can be washed and reused.

  3. Bandeau Bra
  4. bandeau type of bra

    This type of bra is a simple band of cloth worn across the breasts, providing little support or shaping.

  5. Belly Dance Bra
  6. bellydance type of bra

    It is commonly assumed that a belly dancing bra size is the same as normal bra size. This is not necessarily so. For instance if you normally use a size 32C you may well find that a 34B will fit quite comfortably with a few minor adjustments to latch settings since most belly dancing bras are designed to cover very well.

  7. Bridal Bra/Corset
  8. bridal  type of bra

    A bridal bra/corset mold and shape the upper body into a desired shape to fit the wedding dress. In addition to that, this type of bra promotes good posture and can be more comfortable as the weight of the breasts is carried by the whole corset rather than the brassiere’s shoulder straps.

  9. Built-in Bra
  10. builtin type of bra

    Supportive brassiere-like structures on the inside of another garment, such as a swimsuit or tank top, which provide support for the bust without the need for a separate bra. In most such garments, these built-ins consist of a horizontal elastic strip, although some do have cups and underwires as with other bra types. In some cases these may easily be removed, if desired.

  11. Convertible Bra
  12. convertible type of bra

    One of the types of bra that has straps which may be detached and rearranged in different ways depending on the outfit. Alternatives to regular straps for strapless bras are beaded bra straps or clear plastic bra straps that provide support and style.

  13. Demi Bra
  14. demi  type of bra

    A half-cup bra style with wide-set straps and a horizontal bust line. Often seamed or boned, they give great cleavage and a frame-like effect. These offer less support, but enable low cut garments to be worn without the bra being seen. Demi bras may be designed to provide lift as do push-up bras.

  15. Front Closure Bra
  16. frontclosure type of bra

    Types of bra that have closures, usually hooks and eyes, on the front rather than at the back. These bras lie completely flat at the back under clothing. Some feature a racerback style back which is great for wear with tank tops and for lending a no-slip effect to the straps.

  17. Full Support Bra
  18. fullsupport type of bra

    A type of bra designed to offer good support for the whole of the breasts and, as such, are a typical, practical bra for everyday wear.

    Designed more for show and sensuality than for function. This type of bra may include unusual materials, such as leather, coconuts or be unusual in design.

  29. Nursing Bra
  30. nursing type of bra

    Designed to help make breastfeeding simpler by allowing the baby easy access to the nipple. Traditionally, the cups of nursing bras are covered with flaps of fabric that can be unclasped at the top and pulled down to expose the breast.

  31. Padded Bra
  32. padded type of bra

    Bras with padding inside the lining. They are designed to provide a fuller shape for small breasts and are an alternative to bra stuffing, a practice among teenage girls in which ‘falsies’ like tissues, sugar packets, cotton balls, or socks are placed inside a bra to simulate larger breasts. Unlike push-up bras, however, most padded bras support the breasts but do not significantly lift them.

  33. Peephole Bra
  34. peephole type of bra

    The type of bra that has cups loosely covering the breasts, which also includes holes around the nipples.

  35. Push-up Bra

    Structured so that the breasts are lifted and placed closer together to enhance the cleavage. The best known brand of push-up bra is the Wonderbra. Many push-up bras contain padding, typically made of foam or rubber, but some contain gel-filled pads. The main distinction between padded bras and push-up bras that incorporate padding is whether the padding is centred under each breast to simply lift them, or is centred outside the centre of each breast such that the padding pushes the breasts inwards.

  37. Racerback Bra
  38. racerback type of bra

    Has shoulder straps that come over the shouder in a V pattern very close to the neck. This design is sometimes worn under strapless dresses or tops where traditional straps would be very obviously exposed. Many Sport bras use the racerback.

    Essentially a rigid band, usually underwires, along the inframammary line that pushes up while covering none, or only a narrow strip, of the breast.

  41. Softcup Bra

  45. Strapless Bra

  47. T-shirt Bra
  48. tshirt type of bra

    Designed without raised seams, so that a tight t-shirt may be worn without the bra being visible. Types of bra like this often have padded cups to conceal nipples and to provide a smooth line under t-shirts.

  49. Trainer Bra
  50. training type of bra

    Designed for young girls who have begun to develop breasts but have yet to be considered ‘developed’ enough to allow for a standard-sized bra to fit properly. They are of simple construction and offer very little support.

  51. U-plunge Bra
  52. uplunge type of bra

    Allows you to wear clothes that have a deep plunging neckline. 💋

  53. Underwire Bra
