Using Lysol on your vulva after birth!??

My mom told me when she had me in '72,they gave her diluted Lysol to use everytime after she went pee while in the hospital!
What other crazy things have you heard they used to do medically?

  • They actually used to douche with that. It's on the internet somewhere. I think we actually had a discussion on Cafemom several years ago about it too. Ugh....

  • Seems like it would sting real bad. I'm glad that idea didn't stick around.
