109 Comments for the Mucus and Congestion Home Remedy


When you have mucus/phlegm in the throat due to post nasal drip, get some Silver Biotics (it is the only colloidal silver that really works for me) and make a nasal pray with this solution.

Don't add anything, just spray your nose 3 times daily, 2 spray in each nostril. It will fix the post nasal drip and allow the mucus to get out your nose.

THEN move on to the mucus and phlegm in the throat, here is an INSTANT remedy that will work 100%, all the time and it took me a minute to find this one.

1 - Get some Apple Cider Vinegar and mix it with 1/3 Apple Cider Vinegar, 2/3 cold water

2 - Do a gargle then bend over and stay in this position for as long as you can (minimum 3 minutes). Try to bend over and hold your feet.

3 - While bending, press your tongue against the roof of your mouth every 2 to 3 seconds.

What will happen is that:

a) The mucus/phlegm will attached itself to the mixture as Apple Cider Vinegar acts like a sponge.

b) The gravity will let the mucus/phlegm in your throat to fall in your mouth.

You will feel it falling inside your mouth and when you do, please do not stop because there are usually a lot more coming up.

So continue and each treatment should be at least 3 good gargles. You can do that as often as you like until the mucus/phlegm is completely removed. You can end your session by sucking on honey or drops to soothe your throat.

OK so first of all, don't do what I did and read the instructions as 1/3 CUP of ACV and 2/3 COPS of water. I had a lot of rinse made up haha. It really worked great though. I noticed the mucus on the move immediately. There really isn't anything even remotely attractive about this remedy, but let's face it...we're dealing with phlegm here. I've been raving about this since I tried it 10 minutes ago. I did not want to be all phlegmmy and gross when my fiancee comes home this weekend (kinda kills the romance ya know)



This may not work but it does for me.
It only works for a bit but.
If you get scared it will scare the poo out of your snot xD. It shoots out of my mouth when I do it.
I gargle salt water and have my friends scare me.

people, do not try this, apple cider vinegar is very acidic, and it will literally eat away the enamel on your teeth. can't believe someone advised this, but do so at your own risk. i seen ONE comment where a person said they tried this, their teeth were rotting, and wouldn't stop no matter how much they brush. while the acv is a great sponge to the phlegm, if you love your teeth, don't try it. the person that posted this remedy could have at least told you that the acv will corrode your teeth, literally. tc, peace


The apple cider vinegar gargle worked great for me! It was kinda gross, but definitely did the trick! Thanks to whoever posted it. :)


It's cute someone really believes holding some diluted apple cider vinegar in your mouth for a few minutes will destroy your teeth. 'Very acidic' is not a good description of ACV, it's the same pH as your skin and hair. Plenty of remedies encourage drinking ACV mixed with honey and warm water (I did that last night) and how many people substitute ACV solutions for conditioner? It's not going to burn a hole in your face. This isn't sulfuric acid. If it's uncomfortable (aside from hanging upside down with water in your mouth) or has a burn to it, you're using too much ACV in your solution.

I will try this tonight. I've got a sinus infection and it's moved into my throat, so I want to try and kill off the infection as quickly as possible. I'll report back with the results.


Apple cider vinegar is a great product, provided it is organic. I have been using it for hayfever ad congestion by drinking one teaspoon of ACV with one teaspoon good honey and one teaspoon lemon juice in half a cup of warm water. Relief and results are immediate. I'm asthmatic and it helps with coughing. Another remedy which works a treat is to do breathing exercises. 10 to 15 mins daily will help with opening up airways. Breathe in deeply through the nose, exhale through mouth to the count of first three seconds, deep breath in again, exhale 5 seconds, deep breath and up the exhale to 7 seconds. Start over again at 3 secs exhale. Keep going for a min of 15 mins daily, I promise it helps to clear my nose its crazy ridiculous how it may work, but it does. Helps with relieving asthma, helped me to achieve calm during pregnancy and best of all, helped lower my blood pressure. It works on same principle as a product called RESPERATE. Google it if my claim sounds too much. U don't need the machine to show you breathing techniques! The ACV solution is a quick fix but if its too much, try my breathing technique, u have nothing to lose. Love and peace to all.

This really works!! I had a bad sinus infection with a cough. I tried the gargle and I did cough up some phlegm which was good. But about a half hour later, I blew my nose and tons of yucky, green goo that had been almost impacted in my nose for days came out. It was such a relief! So glad I tried this.


To 'aching teeth': ACV will damage teeth enamel only after ver prolonged use. Stop trying to scare people.


OMG that was the groosest thing I have ever tried to do I tried twice thinking yeah 54 other comments of people saying they did this and it worked, well yuk there is no way ever I will ever do that again, all that it bought up was the contense of my stomach


Thank you so much for this tip! I've had problems for years with congestion and this totaaly helped. I'm amazed. Make sure to use good apple cider vinegar. I find Bragg's to be the best brand out there.
