9. Gargle with salt and warm water

Gargling with salt and warm water can give temporary relief to your sore throat. Warm salt water circulated at the back of the throat helps in removing irritants like bacteria, allergens and fungi.

Gargling can help in relieving throat and nose inflammation and pain. The steam is an effective method to decongest the mucus and helps to remove it by thinning it. Steam also relieves chest blockage and irritation in breathing tubes.
