I’m really not into “lifting” things from restaurants, but more than once – when struck with a sore throat on the road – I’ve had to “borrow” a salt shaker from a dining table. Nothing soothes that my-tonsils-are-on-fire feeling like a little NACL gargle.
Now some ingenious folks have come up with single-dose plastic pouches of salt water rinse that promise to 1) heal my throat and 2) keep me from being arrested.
The product is called Simply Gargle Salt Water Rinse. It’s sold at RiteAid, Walmart, and all the usual suspects and online.
In addition to salt, this on-the-go remedy also contains antioxidants and astringents, such as vitamin C, grape seed extract, sage extract, rosemary extract, and rosehips extract. They aren’t giving it away, but when I’m traveling I’d pay almost anything to feel better — even $6.99 for 12 doses.
