Vaseline is 140 years old

By Kristen Hampton - bio l email

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It is the petroleum jelly we've grown to love and know as Vaseline. The slippery jelly has been around for 140 years now after being discovered on drilling rigs.

It's uses are endless but the most popular ones we found were of course the lip moisturizer, elbow grease, eyebrow tamer, sore shield, cracked-hand healer and of course, foot crust softener.

We went to the public to ask for more uses for Vaseline and found an interesting assortment of replies.

Happy Birthday Vaseline!
