Poison Ivy

by Eddie
(Austin, Texas - US)

As a kid I was always getting into something. Living out in the country, there was always something to explore. One day I encountered poison ivy and it was all over me. My grandmother took a mayonaise jar, put a bottle of asprin, a block of camphor and a bottle of alcohol and shook it up until everything was dissolved. Twice a day, I took an old rag that had this solution it and dabbed it all over my poison ivy. Within 3 days, the poison ivy was gone and it never itched or spread any further.
