What are some home remedies for a sore throat?

I leave for Disney World Saturday and this morning I woke up with a sore throat. What are some home remedies I could do to help?

Yes, you could gargle salt water. We are heading to Disney World today, but it is going to start thunder storming at 4pm... I hate to be the barrier of bad news, but you should check the Florida weather. It is going to thunderstorm Friday through Monday. If you don't go today, I doubt you'll go. http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/Orlando+FL+USFL0372

Best remedy ever-as soon as you feel that ahm-ahm tickle in your throat- gargle with hot salted water-as hot as you can stand it, standard cup, approx teaspoon salt-next morning that tickle will be gone-obviously if its gone beyond that tickle, you need to do it as soon as you can, as often as you can, depending on how sore your throat is- if it's really bad, keep it up, 6 or more times a day, it will soon subside.

Gargle with semi hot water with a pinch of salt in it for at least two to three times a day. Take ginger extract on teaspoonful + 1 ts full honey just sip it twice to thrice a day, you will find immediate results.

I think the standard answer is to gargle with a warm iodized salt solution....also I once had a friend whose first complaint was a sore throat, this, after some nurse told him not to worry. Well he waited around and ended up dying of throat cancer. Come to think of it, I may be in a similar situation im that the doctors are doing a second biopsy because they found some suspecialy precancerous cells in the first biopsy. Have a nice day. Bill

Keep lozenges and little salt in mouth.
Try to eat salted apple or cucumber.

Well depending on where you live at it could be the pollen, if your in the southern states but if your not or even if you are since it is Thursday I would try to set up an appointment if I were you so you can just make sure you aren't getting strept throat or something like that. At least if you go ahead and go now and you do need medicine you can start today and will feel better by saturday. & I hope you have fun I love Disney World I've been 3 times and its beautiful be sure to take a camera that has a lot of space.

It's possible that you have infection or you are coming down with a flu, cold or virus as it is one of the symptoms. Gargle saltwater, add honey on a hot drink or tea. You can also drink hot lemonade, lime juice or drink Vitamin C capsule or tablet.
