Today I went to my daughter's softball championship game, I cheered a lot. Too much maybe. My throat is killing me.

I heard that cold water and apple cider vinegar can fix my pain. I'm a bit skeptical, so I decided to try it.

Once mixed, gargle the mixture and then spit it out. It doesn't taste as awful as I thought it would, but it's not particularly pleasant. I rinsed with tap water between gargles.

I repeated the gargle, spit,rinse process several times. I definitely noticed it soothing my pain, much like gargling with salt water. Both taste equally awful, so its your choice which to use. 😝

I saved the remainder of my mixture so I could repeat the steps again later. I did a little research and found that apple cider vinegar with or without honey is a common remedy👉

-for sore throat and heart burn, among other things. Some people said they used warm water & honey, some drank a shot of vinegar every day. Some added cayenne pepper. No thanks!

Apple cider vinegar & honey are not for kids under two years old. Honey can cause infant botulism. For more information on that- look it up. :) if you have a sore throat remedy, please post.
