OT- First Aid Kit: Meat Tenderizer?

I just read LEVE's Article on Off-Road safety and first aid kits. In his list of recommended items for a kit, he lists "Meat Tenderizer".
I was going to ask this via PM, but then thought that others might also be interested in the answer. So......

Larry, or anyone else, what's this for?

PS:
As stated in the Redbird thread, my kit has been gone through. Old crap discarded, new crap loaded, and I feel it will be much more useful if the need should arise again. Good Lord willing, though, it never will!!

It helps to take the sting out of insect bites by neutralizing the venom in the bite. You make a little slurry/paste and put it on the bite. The pain will lesson, as will the damage from the venom. It's not a perfect answer to insect bites, but it does help.

Meat tenderizer kicks butt on those pesky mosquito bites. Or however you spell those dang blasted things.

I've never heard of that. Very interesting.
Is there no end to the list of things to be learned from this board?

The BEST use for meat tenderizer is to get blood out of clothing. Wet the cloth, sprinkle tenderizer on and rub it in. The blood will come out completely without a trace of stain. Learned that in EMT class years ago.

"Excuse me sir, but I can't help but notice that you have a nasty bug bite there".
"Please allow me the pleasure of assisting with your discomfort".

Thanks, JB. That's what my Mommy told me a meat tenderizer is and used one. When I read Leve's answer I was still scratching my head trying to figure out how to use one of those on a bug bite. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

What's the hammer for? In case the meat isn't completely dead or so?
