We read about these so-called home remedies all the time, right?
Some seem like they might be legit, while others sound way to bizarre to even attempt trying. Well, here we present ten home remedies that really do work, even if most of them do sound pretty out there. They can definitely benefit in treating the ailment you are trying to get rid of, and they are pretty much free as much of this stuff you probably already have laying around the house. Check out these crazy, yet very effective, home remedies:
1.Toenail fungus + Listerine
Listerine has disinfectant and antiseptic ingredients that can cure most toenail fungus symptoms. Simply soak your feet in Listerine mouthwash for 15-20 minutes. Do this twice a day.
2.Bad breath + Yogurt
3.Eczema + Olive Oil
Olive oil is rich in vitamin E and works as a really great skin moisturizer. Unrefined, extra virgin olive oil is your best bet for applying to your skin after showering while you are still somewhat damp as the oil helps seal in moisture and will soothe any flair-ups which occur.
4.Sugar + Hiccups
Everyone has their tricks for stopping hiccups, but it turns out eating a spoonful of sugar is one that really does work. Apparently the sweetness hitting the tongue actually overtakes the nerve endings in the mouth and ceases the hiccups from continuing.
5. Alertness + Peppermint/Cinnamon Gum
Heres a method to increase alertness and avoid fatigue. Studies have it that those chewing peppermint or cinnamon gum have a 20% increase in awareness and reduction in fatigue!
6.Warts + Duct Tape
Yes, its true. The magic of duct tape! As far as removing warts, we are looking at a 85% success rate. Apply it to the wart, leave it on for a week, remove and then use a pumice stone to scour the affected area. Repeat the process until wart is gone!
7.Headaches + Pencil
If you are a jaw clencher then you likely are a headache sufferer. By biting on a pencil you relax the jaw and hence ease or prevent your headache.
Not many would think to pour their feet a glass of vodka, but it turns out if them feet are stenchy, then you can go ahead and give them a drink. Simply take a towel with vodka on it and wipe them up! The alcohol serves as an anti-septic destroying fungus and germs.
The extra saliva you produce through motion sickness can cause the queasiness. Lemons and olives contain tannin which will give you that puckered up feeling, so when you feel sea sickness coming on, suck on that lemon or eat some olives!
10.Acne + Tomato
If you mash up a small tomato and then put it on your acne for an hour, once a day for a week, then you should see some major skin improvements. Turns out tomatoes contain lots of antioxidants, acidic content and vitamins C and A. All helps with treating minor skin issues.
