Email received from friend Annette about two years ago and just found again -

Did you know that drinking two glasses of Lucozade  can relieve headache pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers?

Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles. 

Did you know that toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?

Before you head to the chemist for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong  peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose. 

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never advertised for this use. 

Honey remedy for skin blemishes... cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a plaster over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight. 

Therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again. 

Easy specs protection... to prevent the screws in spectacles from loosening, apply a small drop of Clear Nail Polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.

Balm for broken blisters... to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of strong mouthwash, a powerful antiseptic. 

Vinegar to heal bruises... soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process. 

Porridge Oats for fast pain relief... it's not for breakfast any more! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain. 

Well, I never!!!
