Soothe Sore Throats
To alleviate the discomfort of a mild sore throat, gargle several times daily with a mixture of 1/4 teaspoon Morton® Salt and 1/2 cup warm water*. It’s like taking a liquid lozenge.
*Gargling with warm salt water is recommended by the American Academy of Otolaryngology to alleviate mild sore throat pain. See a physician if your sore throat persists longer than five days or if the sore throat is accompanied by difficulty in breathing or swallowing, joint pain, earache, a rash or fever.
Soak Your Feet
To prepare a salt water bath:
- Pour 6 quarts (1-1/2 gallons) warm water in a large basin.
- Mix in 1/4 cup Morton® Salt and 1/4 cup baking soda.
- Soak feet for up to 15 minutes.
*Warning: Diabetics or individuals with poor circulation should consult their physician before using.
