Home Remedies That Actually Work
GOOD MORNING MY FRIENDS
Weirdest Home Remedies That Actually Work
Listerine cures toenail fungus
Soaking your feet in Listerine mouthwash for 15-20 minutes, twice a day
, will cure most cases of toenail fungus. Listerine contains antiseptic and
disinfectant ingredients; it has been used for everything from curing gonorrhea
to cleaning floors.
Listerine is also good for curing blisters (dab onto blister 2-3 times per day to dry it out), and dandruff.
2. Yogurt cures bad breath
Studies have shown that live bacteria in sugar free yogurt can suppress levels of
bad breath-causing bacteria. If the bad bacteria can't survive, your breath smells sweeter.
3. Olive oil cures Eczema
Olive oil is rich in vitamin E, so it's a great skin moisturizer. Apply extra virgin
, unrefined olive oil to your skin after showering, while your skin is still damp.
The olive oil seals in moisture and helps soothe painful Eczema flair-ups.
4. Sugar stops the hiccups
Hiccups are annoying, but now you can stop them within one minute simply
by swallowing a teaspoon full of dry sugar. Experts believe that the sudden
sweetness on the tongue overloads the nerve endings in the mouth and stops
the hiccup spasm.
5. Chewing peppermint or cinnamon gum eases commuting stress
Studies have shown that chewing peppermint or cinnamon gum increases
awareness and reduces fatigue by as much as 20%. Test subjects reported
25% less frustration and 30% increased alertness. The drive also seemed 30%
shorter for those who chewed the gum, versus those who did not.
6. Duct tape cures warts
Duct tape: Is there anything it can't do? Some people would go to great
lengths to have warts removed. Typically, painful options like cryotherapy,
acid preparations, laser therapy, heat, and tape occlusion are the treatment
of choice, but even cryotherapy (burning the wart off with liquid nitrogen)
has only a 60% success rate. Comparably, the painless practice of applying
a small piece of duct tape seems to provide about an 85% success rate.
Simply apply a small piece of duct tape to the wart and leave it on for a week.
Then wash the area and use a pumice stone to scour the affected area, and
reapply the tape for another week. Repeat until the wart is gone.
7. Biting on a pencil cures headaches
Tension headaches can often arise from unconsciously clenching your jaw.
Gently holding a pencil between your teeth forces your jaw muscles to
relax, easing your headache.
8. Vodka cures stinky feet
Wipe your feet with a vodka-soaked rag to eliminate foot odor. Vodka contains
alcohol, an antiseptic that is very drying. Alcohol destroys odor-causing fungus
and bacteria and dries out the moisture that lets these organisms grow.
9. Olives and lemons cure sea sickness
Motion sickness causes excess saliva, which can make you queasy.
Eating olives or sucking on a lemon at the first signs of sea sickness
can help ease nausea thanks to the tannins contained in these items.
10. Tomatoes cure acne
Tomatoes have a lot of vitamins C and A, antioxidants and acidic content,
so they can be used to treat a variety of minor skin ailments. This cure is
especially good for oily skin. Mash one small tomato into a pulp, then spread
the pulp on your face and let it sit for one hour. Wash it off with tepid water
and pat dry. Repeat once a day for a week
