Forget Madam Ruppert's face bleach. Madam Ruppert (aka The Masked Woman) was woefully misguided. Nothing with the word "corrosive" in it should come within five yards of the human body. Mrs. R probably wishes she'd realized that sooner.
I call your attention to the ingredients in Micajah's Medicated Uterine Wafers. This is terrible, bad, horrible, nasty idea. (Even the idea of a "uterine wafer" is bizarre.) Forget the bismuth and the zinc. Never mind the acacia. Dwell on the mercury and carbolic acid. And of course a "sufficient quantity" of water. To do what, put out the fire?
