Research Facts
This bottle contains a mixture of Acetanilide and Lysol. Acetanilide is a compound drug used for fever-reducing since 1886 as an alternative to aspirin for treating headaches, cramps, and rheumatism. It does have toxic side effects from prolonged use such as complicating the function of hemoglobin. Lysol was first used in Germany in 1889 to end a cholera epidemic. It is a mixture of soap with cresols as an antiseptic. Before its use as a cleaner, it has been used as a poison, to treat the Spanish flu of 1918, and as a method of birth control in women in the 1920s. This bottle is half-filled with the liquid.
