    Humor at Tractor Supply

    This morning I stopped at Tractor Supply to pickup a tin of Bag Balm, an excellent chamois cream. The nice lady behind the counter asked if I had cows. I responded, "No, a bicycle". The look on her face was priceless!

    She was likely wondering what part of a bike gets chapped! Ha...

    You can also get Bag Balm at Wal-Mart in the hand lotion section.
    Knowledge is Free. You must however, provide your own container

    My wife's Aunt used, she passed away some years back, Bag Balm for and to prevent chapped lips. Just don't let anyone use the Bag Balm can you use for your butt on their lips.

    Does the Bag Balm wash out of the chamois easily without any staining?

    It's just petrolatum with some lanolin and some mild antiseptic. It has an old fashioned carbolic smell.

    Ummm, you're choice, but I'm thinking more along the lines of, "just don't let anyone use the Bag Balm can you use on your lips on their butt."

    Ok. I hate to sound dense, but does it wash out of the chamois easily without any staining? Thanks.

    Camilo,

    First, I apply it to me. I've not had any staining problems.

    Get a small container and give it a try. Some like it, some don't. Just like redheads.

    Who the hell doesn't like redheads???

    Been chatting to a 14 year old girl online. She's funny, sexy and flirty. Now she tells me she is an undercover cop! How cool is that at her age!?

    I use Bag Balm when I tour. The chamois washes fine.

    OTOH, since it is good to keep skin from cracking. I use it on my feet to help keep the skin soft, because as a long-term effect of diabetes the skin does not sweat enough and the natural oils diminish and... I suppose vaseline would do the same, however the BB is in the house and handy.

    Nice laugh

    BB is about as good as anything on dry chapped hands in the winter. I have never tried it on my rump.

    Should have told her that it for you because you were chapped from all the milking. That would have lit her up.

    No, but I sometimes wear them inside out for sanitary purposes (like I reverse my underwear if I haven't done laundry in a while). Don't want them to look unsightly.

    My Wallyworld used to carry it in the pet dept. then they switched to something they told me was the same but cost 2x made by Sargents. The pharmacist ordered several tins of the real deal in for me at a reasonable price. Stuff works wonders. A guy I know who spent a summer on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska said they used Bag Balm as a hand healing ointment.

    I turn something else inside out for reuse. Just because your happy, doesn't mean you shouldn't be frugal.

    (I tried to resist, really, really tried. Sometime you gotta swing at the easy pitches)
