The Unglamourous Practice Of Gargling With Hot Salt Water

My sore throat requires very pedestrian remedies - no fancy antibiotics or anything. Just the old standards -- forcing fluids, hot chicken soup, gargling with hot salt water.

I forgot how well gargling with hot salt water works . . . and how much I hate doing it. If you slip, it runs down the side of your head like a big salty tear and soaks your PJ's. Yuck.
