Weird remedies from our Mothers

So.. I grew up in California. We had a pool, and I had swimmers ear CONSTANTLY! My mom would drop a few drops of warm milk in my ear. Sounds weird but it helped instantly. Right away the pain was gone for good.

What weird remedies did your moms have? Did they work?

    My mom did this too!
      My Mother In Law always tells us to soak a rag in vinegar and water and then lay the rag on your forehead to cure fevers. It seems completely insane, but we've tried it 3 times now and it works like a charm!!
