Sore Throat Remedy

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.


  1. Wow...I've never heard of this before! Awesome!! I am really into Zicam...which you have to take at the first feeling of sickness--but it is great!! I'm definitely going to give the Listerine a try!

  2. I don't know why I've never thought of this. It makes perfect sense with the antiseptic ingredients and all. Great tip!

  3. I gargle with salt water, but I haven't gotten a sore throat for a while. Just sinus stuff. But I will mentally file your Listerine trick. Makes sense.


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
