Dez

This is an old house remedy that my mother would use on us whenever we had canker sores, which ran in my family: simply placing a pinto bean onto the sore itself. It didn't hurt too bad when you put it on and since beans absorb moisture it 'latches onto' the sore itself. Just leave the pinto bean on there for as long as it will hold naturally, usually several hours and the sore should go away relatively quickly.
I would usually put it on right before bed but I'm somewhat of a wild sleeper so the bean would come off due to my moving around. The only trick is to not speak or move your mouth in such a way that makes the bean fall off.
As far as the sleeping with it goes, I'd only recommend that for people who sleep on their side regularly, such as myself, as to prevent the bean from being inhaled during sleep.
