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
