Eighty-one reasons to use apple cider vinegar !!

Raw apple cider vinegar has been a staple in my cupboard for decades. Today I read this article on the Internet and rushed to gargle for my sore throat. I’d been gargling with salt water. Perhaps I’ve “caught a cold”?

ACV First Aid: Sore Throat

Most of the time a sore throat is nothing serious—and if caught early enough a common sense remedy like ACV can save you hours of time wasted at the doctor’s office—and a hefty co-pay IF you have insurance!

In cases of viral infection, antibiotics don’t help—but that doesn’t keep doctors from over-prescribing unnecessary medication that could make matters worse.


• 1/4 cup ACV
• 1/4 cup filtered water

At first sign of sore throat
Mix ACV with water
Gargle with this solution for at least 30 seconds
Rinse with Water
Repeat several times

Cold–or no cold–I didn’t let it slow me down!! I completed a garden project; see my earlier blog titled Planter project for neighbor.

Honestly, I also accomplished a dozen other projects. No pictures. Now it is time to “sit down and relax.”
