1. Drink A Teaspoon Of Cider Vinegar
The taste might not be the best but it will work. Drink it quickly and wait 5-10 seconds. If you still have a vinegar taste in your mouth, drink a glass of water (which will help with the next step).
2. Drink Plenty Of Water
Your body may be creating a lot of phlegm because it is trying to fight off an illness, which means your immune system is putting in a lot of work. Keep your body hydrated so it gets the job done. Add lemon to help break up mucus.
3. Make Some Toast
Toast is able to scrape the throat softly to help break phlegm and carry it down into the stomach.
4. Gargle Salt Water
Take a 1/2 teaspoon of salt with a cup of warm water, gargle with your head tilted back for about 10-15 seconds and then spit out the mixture.
5. Drink Warm Liquids
Warm liquids, such as tea, chicken soup or etc, will help break up some of the mucus stuck in your throat and provide you with the necessary nourishment.
6. Eat Spicy Foods
Ever eaten something so spicy your nose starts running uncontrollably? Spicy foods can be a great decongestant and should help loosen up phlegm.
7. Drink Lemon Tea With Local Honey
The acidity of the lemon will break up the mucus and the honey will help coat your throat and even prevent coughing. (1)
