12 Clever Ways To Use Vicks VapoRub

3. Stop a squeaky door hinge

If a squeaky door is driving you crazy and you’re out of WD-40, rub a little VapoRub on the door hinge. VapoRub has a petroleum jelly (also known as Vaseline) base, so it will oil the hinge and stop the squeaks!

4. Ease earache pain

For mild earaches, place VapoRub on a cotton ball and put it in your ear to reduce the pain (be careful — it should just sit gently in the cup of your ear. Don’t push it into the ear canal!). VapoRub will not treat an earache, but it will at least make the pain a little bit more manageable.
