One memorable day, a few months ago now, Lil’ Duck discovered the joy of Baby Vaporub. This product must feel especially lovely in hair, because that is exactly where he put it. We tried hot water, shampoo, etc. but it just took about 8-10 washings before it was back to normal (we had some mohawk fun in the meantime). Therefore, we now have a tip for removing Vaseline Vaporub from hair….
If I’d known that putting cornstarch in his hair would sop up the extra oil, it would have saved us a lot of scrubbing. Hopefully I don’t need to use this tip again, but it might help one of you – I’d try it for removing any petroleum-based/oily product. It would probably have also helped us with our vegetable oil flood….. ah, well.
