    Did you receive any hand me down remedies from your grandmother or mother? Like to cure a sty of the eye lid make an x on it using a gold ring.

    Irish whisky, honey, lemon, in hot tea. For colds. That would make my having my first drink when I was five. Pretty normal stuff, considering my ancestry.

    put duct tape over a wart....leave it for a week..remove..file on wart a bit....replace duct tape...do this until the wart is gone..shouldnt take more than a few weeks....

    take a bit of aloe and rub on a new burn...it will keep it from blistering and all...

    put a youngin with the poxs...in a bath with baking soda....it will stop the itching for about 6 hours...

    instead of an ice pack..use frozen peas...it will shape around what you are icing down....not nearly as heavy

    For sore throat:

    crush a few baby aspirin between two spoons
    stir into a glass of O.J.
    Drink the O.J. through a straw taking small sips.

    I still do this, it's the best remedy for a sore throat and you don't have to pay an arm and a leg at the pharmacy for that shitty tasting stuff they sell for sore throats.

    If you want this to be considered an old home remedy, then don't forget the eye of newt

    My mother would just rub the wart and say something to herself and tell you to forget about the wart. 2 or 3 days the wart was gone.She never did reveal her secret tho.

    Hiccups- bite down on a pencil then drink water from a glass while holding your head down. Works.

    Water in ear- prop yourself against the wall with your hand while leaning over, then kick your leg out sideways.
