Meat tenderizer works great for bee stings. Just moisten the area and sprinkle it on. I've heard it's also good for jellyfish stings.

When I used to boogie board in Virginia Beagh, I got into a bunch of jellyfich and got stung, I used a cigarette butt to rub on it and take away the sting.

We have the Lasko version of the blower fan, love it! It works great inside the camper as well. When dry camping and running the generator and only one a/c unit, it will push a lot of air to keep the whole camper cool.

It looks like the type of fan that is used for drying wet floors/carpet. Correct?

Thanks for the idea.
