Bag Balm’s 12 Greatest Stories: #8

This blog post is one in a 12-part series. We asked fans to submit their best Bag Balm story in an effort to unearth the best stories about our salve as it approaches its 120th birthday.

I'm 81 years old.

I've been using Bag Balm for the last 30 years, since working in the New England area.

I use it all year around but especially in the summer when we bike. It is a good moisturizer, and a fairly good bug repellent. The mosquitoes land in it, get a leg or wing stuck, go 'Eww eww eww!' until they finally pull it out. In an emergency, it makes a good chain grease too.

This is not a contest entry, just an accolade. Two or three cans would probably last me the rest of my life anyway.
