Since I was a very small child, my mother had us gargle hot salt water for sore throats. She mixed it so that it was almost like a brine, very very salty, and then we gargled it until we gagged. Once we gagged, we were finished, because that gagging allowed the brine to get to that portion of the throat that simple gargling didn't. If anyone has ever seen what salt will do to a slug, they will understand why the salty brine breaks that gunk off the back of your throat. Good luck to everyone out there.
