My never fail home remedy for a sore throat is Listerine. Usually I’m all for store-brand products over their more expensive name-brand counterparts, but for this, it’s worth the extra expense to me.
Gargling with Listerine (the minty flavors are more palatable) several times a day for a couple of days gets rid of my sore throat before it turns into a nastier infection. I think it’s the antiseptic in the mouthwash that kills all the germs in my throat. Listerine works for me.
Of course, I use these too.
How do you get rid of sore throats? Do you remember this commercial? Can you say Ricola without yodelling? I can't.
