  • Put kerosene on a cut that is sore. It will take the soreness away in a couple of hours. I'm not sure why it works. I just know that it works.

  • I don't think it counts as a remedy, but if my kids get so much as a sniffle, they ask for orange juice and sprite. I grew up drinking it when I was sick (not really sure how that got started) so I passed it on to them. No medical benefits whatsoever as far as I know, but it does cheer them up.
