Lysol for Feminine Hygiene « The Chawed Rosin

Lysol for Feminine Hygiene « The Chawed Rosin

You know people seem to always say it was better back in the days. They will say something like, “In my day we didn’t have to lock our doors” or  “We had more respect for our elders”… you know; the usual ‘things were better-slash-if only we could turn back the hands of time’ type of sayings.


If you were a woman in 1940’s using Lysol for you feminine hygiene,  maybe you wouldn’t think “back in the day” was so great. In fact, if you were Black, Hispanic, Irish, Polish, Native American, or a women, chances are that your life was pretty limited. So what was so great about the 1940’s and 50’s? lol

The blogger thankfully gave a link to The Museum of Menstruation and Women’s Health if you want more info.

Check out some of the comments. They are to die for!

 Honorable Mention:

How does this compare to radium being used as a component of women’s beauty products back in the 40s?

Not really surprising… Vaseline and coca extract was considered to be a cure-all, and vibrators were medical devices used to control womenly “hysteria” with weekly treatments. Go figure…
