The Mexican Medicine Cabinet
This is like the Puerto Rican medicine cabinet, except for the last two (maybe a variation).

Crazy story time:

When I was a kid, my mother used to rub Vicks vapor rub ANNNNDDD alcohol all over my body and wrapped me in layers of blankets like a burrito. Anyone's parents did this too? I don't think this worked...tbh lol.

Yup :) A whole jar of Vix, then wrapped in plastic and a blanket. Afterwards, I was fed slightly spicy chicken noodle soup. I was a burrito princess :)
