Am I the only one who finds the taste of styptic mildly pleasant?
Not only is Andy correct, but if you consume enough of that stuff be prepared for the urge to relieve exceptional intestional pressures.:9898:woodbane said:
woodbane said:Ahhhh Ron, dear old Ron! As astute as ever and quite correct. I had quite forgotten about the superlative laxative effects of consuming ones styptic.
Gotta say though that Prune juice tastes somewhat better and achieves the same thing!
My goodness! You need to try some of the QED soaps, particularly the Mocha Java! Doesn't need any styptic to be really tasty..russellnyc said:If you mix it with Trumper violet, which is naturally sweet and kind of pasty, styptic pencil tastes a bit like a sweet tart. I find alum block more lemonade-tasting anyway. My AoS products taste pretty good too. I believe if it's good enough for my face, it's good enough for my belly!
This happened to me today, a few times - it actually wasn't bad! It didn't taste like a battery to me, more like... super-concentrated old citrus. Sounds terribly pleasant, I know, but it wasn't as bad as I was expecting.TakeTheCann0lis said:Occasionally, I would cut my upper lip, and the water combined with the styptic (aluminum?) would drip into my mouth. To me it tastes like like licking a 9v battery.
I guess I am the only one huh?
