Delicious, Inexpensive Cold Fighter

This tip comes from one of my lovely college girlfriends, but I am not sure which one! Anyhow, you can make a tasty (and cheap!) cold fighter with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Just heat some water in a tea kettle or in the microwave until very hot and steamy, and at a few tablespoons of honey and lemon juice. I can't give exact measurements because I like it with more honey, but hubby says its better with more lemon. Anyway. It tastes good and makes sore throats feel much better!

The little girl I babysit has strep. I'll have to tell her mother about this!

Thanks so much for this. I really enjoy using home remedies. I plan to post a cough remedy using honey this wednesday so I had to chuckle when I saw what you were using to fight it. Honey gets lots of uses in our house and now I have one more. Thanks.
