Strange home remedies?

Someone told me to use coffee grounds in my hair to exfoliate my scalp! Now I know people use mayo in they're hair but coffee? Weird.

 What home remedies have you heard that were strange to you? Did you try it anyways?

good

  • Onion slices on your feet wrapped up are good for a bad cough.Tobacco pulls for pulling out a chest cold. Also my parenst used to blow cig smoke into our ears when we had ear aches!

  • I have heard of blowing cig smoke in your ears! Rubbing a pissy diaper over a child's tongue who has thrush(never tried it).

  • Rubbing the wet diaper on your face is good for your skin.

  • Urine on foot fungus, peeing on your feet, baking soda to wash your face to help oil control. Both work.

  • Natural honey in your eyes for pink eye. Boy does it hurt at first, but it makes you cry a lot and the honey is a natural disinfectant. It also works on zits (left on overnight) and helps wounds heal better and with less scarring. Not the honey you buy in the little plastic bear, lol, the one you get from a natural food store or online store :) It is a much lighter color and thicker texture.
