    Use about a quarter to a half teaspoon of non-iodized salt if you have it in about a cup of warm water, not cold water. Spit out the water when you are done.

My mom made me gargle salt water and it became the funniest 2nd ever. I gargled it and spit it out in my mothers face because of the fact it became no longer solid. I didnt swallow yet i ought to flavor it and it became undesirable! on a daily basis I did it and my mom suggested if I spit it out i visit be grounded. She wouldnt floor me for that, She's in simple terms doing it to make me gargle. I did it for some days and my sore throat became extra effective. So, Yeah, It enables out. Do it for like, a minute two times or thrice an afternoon. counting on how a lot it hurts ya.
