What is a good home remedy for a sore throat?

I do not have the money to go to the doctor and would like my sore throat to stop hurting.

Besides the stuff you can buy, you can put 1 tsp of salt into a 8 oz glass of warm water. You will need to gargle with it 3 or 4 times a day.

Take a painkiller like paracetamol. You can buy over the counter throat sprays or lozenges cheaply, some kinds contain anasthetic to numb your throat. Make hot drinks with lemon juice and honey to soothe your throat. Get plenty of rest, eat soft foods and try not to talk too much to give your throat the chance to heal.

Try gargling with warm salt water. Use about 1 to 3 teaspoons of salt per cup of hot water. Gargle for 5 minutes. Repeat every hour as needed.
