Hi, i was thinking back to when i was a kid [yes ive got a pretty good memory some of the time]
I come from fair size family, used to have 5 sisters & a couple of us had asthma.
My kid sister had it worse than me, & we used to have these inhalers, but not like now.
The inhaler was more roundish & cylinder. You took part off, put a little tab thing [filled with a powder] in, then when you put it back together it punctured the tab. You then inhaled and as you did, it made a kind of whizzing sound.
Talking around mid to late 60s
Also, if we felt bit breathless at night, i can remember my mum used to rub goose grease on our chest.
Anyone else remember this?
I dont know if it was called goose grease, or actually was goose grease.
Just remember it being an off white colour & not smelling too good.
