FLOUR FOR BURNS!!
"Some time ago, I was cooking some corn and stuck
my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready.
I missed and my hand went into the boiling water.
A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the
house as I was screaming & asked me if I had some plain
old flour. I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He
told me to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes.
He said that in Vietnam, there was a guy on fire and in their
panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out...
Well, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had a blister...
Long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 min.,
pulled it out and did not even have a red mark or a blister &
absolutely NO PAIN.
Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn
myself. I use the flour and have never ever had even a red
spot/burn mark, or a blister! I even burnt my tongue once, put
the flour on it for about 10 minutes the pain was gone and no
Keep a bag of flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did.
Flour has heat absorbent property and also has a strong antioxidant
property, thus it helps in burn patients if applied within 15 minutes.
*Cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour."
