My Grandad told me that his Mom would wash their hair with kerosene if they got head lice. He said the problem was, the kerosene gave the lice diarrhea and they pulled out all of his hair to wipe with🤣

Doc, whether it was the lime or what in cement I don't know. I do know that cement will dry your skin out really bad which in the case of an ivy rash, I found to be a good thing😊
