Soothe a sore throat with vinegar

Believe it or not vinegar can ease the pain. Any type will do but wine vinegar or cider vinegar may taste better. Put a teaspoon of vinegar in a glass of water. Gargle, then swallow. Do this 3 times a day until things are on the mend.>

Vinegar works!! Comments By: Sandy on 2007-03-13
I tried white vinegar plain! It burned a little but I let it soak at the back of my throat with my head tilted back. I thought I was gonna die... (not literally). I repeated it about an hour later and the next morning, most of the soreness was gone. The vinegar helped a LOT! My mother was the one who advised me to use it. She said she used it deveral times before and usually by the next morning, she fet better. I know I did too.

Also try this! Comments By: Amber on 2008-01-10
Another thing that works is to mix a spoonful of cayenne powder, a bit of honey and a bit of vinegar. Warm up a bit, put mixture in shotglass and chug! It will make your throat burn really bad for a few seconds, you may burp really loud for the next few minutes, but your throat will feel better almost immediately, because the cayenne powder will renew the coating around your throat. Just be sure to have some cold water handy for after you chug it! Happy mending!

Works every time Comments By: Anon on 2009-01-04
I have done this so many times with a sore throat. The thing is to remember to do it at the start of a soar throat and it works faster, if you wait then it takes more applications to cure but most of the time it is gone by the next day.
 
Not a cure, a bandage...but a good one. Comments By: Amanda on 2009-03-07
The vinegar will help tremendously on a sore throat. However, it will only help in curing a sore throat if the infection is bacterial. If it is a viral infection, the vinegar will not help in curing it. Only a health care professional should determine which on it is. But, until you can see a doctor. This will work fine. But, please have a doctor in mind if you see no progress.
 
wonderful Comments By: max on 2009-05-22
this worked great! the "version" of the recipe I used was
2tbsp apple cider vinegar
about 1 to 2 cups steaming water
2tbsp honey (adjust for your sweet tooth)

I gargled the drink then swallowed. apple cider vinegar is also used to clean out your system so if your just overall buggy, try this!

dont bother with anything else, a strong vinegar held in the back of the throat with gargling will kill most of the pain and infection
 
Vinegar & Salt for Mouth sore/Sore throat Comments By: Michelle on 2011-03-05
Dip a cotton swab in the vinegar & salt and dab it on the mouth sore, it will sting at first but you won't feel anymore pain after you do it. For sore throat, gargle with two teaspoon of vinegar & salt, then swallow. It will help tremendously. If vinegar is good for disinfecting the house, it works for food... it's definitely good for the body.
