    Back when pepper spray was actually made with capsaicin, milk eye washes and sour cream on the skin soothed it right away (now with the CS type gas, it doesn’t work so well, so we are back to water and baby shampoo in the eyes.) Mayonnaise is great for softening the tar embedded in road rashes before you try to scrub them clean (let it sit on the abrasions for about 15 minutes, the oils in the mayonnaise will soften the tar.) Milk and molasses enemas work with a vengeance.

    Are there any other treatments you have to call the kitchen instead of the pharmacy?
