Whether it be to combat foot and toenail fungus or to test the old wive's tale about preventing nighttime cough, there are many reasons why a person would want to apply Vicks Vapor Rub (known in stores as Vicks VapoRub) to their feet. Doing so is easy and only takes a few seconds.
Open the bottle of Vicks VapoRub. This is done by twisting the bottle counter-clockwise.
Scoop some of the VapoRub gel onto your index and middle fingers. Do not be afraid to scoop a large amount of the gel.
Apply the gel with long, gentle strokes along the length of your foot. Be sure to apply the gel in a thin, evenly layered amount. Remember to apply the gel to the area between your toes and on the bottom of your feet.
