Quiet a Nighttime Cough: Apply Vicks Vaporub generously on the bottom of both feet at bedtime, then cover with socks. Even persistant, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and will stay suppressed for up to 8 hours of relief.
Clean your microwave: Put a microwave safe bowl in the microwave, fill it with water, add a dash of vinegar & put it on for 5 minutes. The steam will soften up all the gunk & absorb the smells. Let it sit to let the steam penetrate.
