Quick And Easy Remedy For A Sore ThroatMy grandmother came up with a quick and easy remedy for a sore throat. It makes use of 1 egg, a teaspoon of salt, and a bath towel.
Roll the towel lengthwise on a table, then crack the egg and place the raw egg white on the center of the towel. Douse the egg white with a teaspoon of salt and let it set a couple minutes until the egg white starts to absorb into the towel. Then wrap the towel around your neck and pin it together so it'll stay in place. The next morning your sore throat will be gone. It works because the egg and salt mixture presses against your neck and cleans out the skin's pores. Your neck will be crusty with salt.
Grandma used this idea on me as a kid, and also on a friend who was prone to sore throats. (Jodi Creeron, 5 Stoneleigh Knoll, Old Lyme, Conn. 06371 ph 860 434-8920)
