With Autumn (and Freshers’ Week) fast approaching it’s inevitable that we’ll soon be unable to escape that annoying sniffling and throat clearing on buses, in the library and pretty much every other public place you can think of. Ah the sound of British Winter.
Treating these sorts of coughs and colds can be a bit of a nuisance, especially as they seem to return every other week, just as you’ve drained the last drop of cough medicine from the bottle and finished the last cough drop from the packets scattered across your bedroom floor. Luckily there are many home remedies that you can whip up yourself in your kitchen or bathroom that (I think) will do a better job at making you feel better anyway. Here are a few easy ways to help relieve some of the most common symptoms of the winter cold.
