View Full Version : Petro Carbo AKA...

By the way, people are talking about this product if they refer to some
old-time nicknames for it: Drawing Salve (because it helps draw out
slivers and splinters), Black Salve (because it was a darker color in
previous formulations), or Bag Balm (because farmers used it on cows
udders after milking).

When folks do refer to it by these names, be sure to ask them to share their stories.........I've heard some really great stories this way.

My hubby got me an antique Watkins petro carbo tin and on it it says "For man or beast" because it was used regularly on farm animals as well!

When I first started with Watkins, my Brother-in-law had asked for the drawing salve. Since I didn't have a clue what he was talking about, I handed him a catalog and he pointed out the Petro Carbo and shared his story about it's use for splinters.
