OLD FASHIONED REMEDIES

(1) IF YOU HAVE WARTS, SUBMERGE THEM IN DOG URINE, AND THE WART
WILL DISSAPPEAR.
(2) IF YOU HAVE A BLACK EYE, PUT RAW BEEF ON IT TO TAKE AWAY THE
SWELLING, THE BRUISE, AND THE PAIN.
(3) IF YOU HAVE HICCUPS, PUT A PAPER BAG OVER YOUR HEAD, OR
HOLD YOUR BREATH AND JUMP UP AND DOWN ON ONE LEG 10 TIMES.
(4) PUT GARLIC OR BUTTER ON A BEE STING OR BURN TO ALLEVIATE
THE PAIN. OF COURSE TAKE THE STINGER OUT FIRST.
(5) WRAP DOUGH WITH OLIVE OIL AROUND A BROKEN FINGER
AND THEN WRAP IT UP WITH A BANDAGE TO CURE THE BROKEN BONE.

Submitter comment: THESE REMEDIES I KNOW ABOUT BECAUSE ALL HAPPENED TO ME.
ONE MAY PICK THEM UP AT HOME FROM RELATIVES OR PARENTS OR
FRIENDS.
