No matter how you spell it, it says Kip! Unless you spell it backwards. of course. It seems to have been an all-purpose salve, since "cuts" and "sunburn" aren't exactly in the same category these days. Now we have Soothing Aloe for sunburn, and crisp antiseptics for cuts. Who knows what was in Kip? Or why they chose such a breezy product name?

Never knew anyone who had an infected sunburn, although I'm sure that happens. And I don't know anyone who's suffered windburn lately, although I'm sure I'm showing my ignorance there. I am, however, reasonably sure no one has been hospitalized with infected windburn around these parts in a while.
