It works Comments By: Bimmers on 2010-01-22
I have tried this, and it does work.
Think that I will have to keep doing it as it will wear off. But my throat feels much better, but still have a cold!

Salt and water doesn't work, so if you add baking powder it will surely just make it unbearable!!!

Didn't work for me Comments By: James on 2010-05-10
I'm going out this weekend with the most amazing girl ever. Today is Monday so I have four days to get better from this sore throat. I'm trying everything. This particular tip made me sick, 3 times. I know it works, I just can't handle the salt.
 
disgusting Comments By: sarah on 2010-10-09
i tried this, and all it made me do was throw up, that actually made my throat worse!!
 
it works! Comments By: frank on 2010-12-08
It works and no nasty Chemicals either. You can also try chewing fresh Oregano or Thyme tea, or if you stand it eat some raw garlic. Garlic is great!
 
Pretty good! Comments By: Donna on 2010-12-16
Worked quite well, has taken some of the pain away, its totally rank and made me gag but was worth it!
 
Tastes terrible, but it works Comments By: Karen on 2011-03-26
I tried this just now after a night of poor sleep and discomfort and my throat instantly felt better! I might have to do this again in a few hours, but for now my throat is no longer sore!
