Sore Throat? Sugar Water!

I read about this in a home remedy book. ​And when you think about it, its true! Basically the same thing as a cough syrup without the weird ingredients and strong taste. I don't keep cough syrup in my house anymore. No need to. When I am sick, people tell me "Warm salt water gargle!" Ugh, no thanks.
