Whenever I feel a tingle in my throat, I get a small glass of warm water and add 1 T of apple cider vinegar and drink it down. Then I start drinking a cup of hot tea a couple times a day with 1 T of honey and 1 T of apple cider vinegar and have not had a problem with sore throat in several years since I started doing this.
My husband taught me this one! If you feel like you might be coming down with a cold or sore throat, gargle with Listerine. Sometimes you can keep yourself from getting sick. It doesn't always work, of course, but it really helps! Give it a try. I also like Airborne, but I don't always have it around the house and mouthwash has been a lifesaver.
