Your favorite Home Remedies?

My roommate that I take care of had some 'real bad' leg cramps...so we looked around on the internet and found out about quinine that can't be found anymore but there are traces of it in tonic water...anyway I was just wondering out of the whole lot of you...what are your favorite home remedies? For everything...

For leg cramps, try a couple of bananas a day.
For a toothache, hold a small amount of brandy over the tooth. (if you drink enough, you won't care if it still hurts)...

"For everything?"

For a vehicle that suffers vapor-lock, wrap aluminum foil around the steel fuel lines. Hold the foil in place with wooden clothes pins.
For a burned-out low beam headlight in a 4 headlamp system, unplug the two high-beam-only lights, and use the two "regular" headlights on "high".

For a rattling car door striker, wrap some duct tape around the striker bolt.

To preserve that rose your honey gave you, put an asprin in teh vase, and fill with water. The rose will last and look better longer.

A small dollop of aloe on a burn will help keep skin burns minimized.

Anybody else? I don't want this to be "The Terry's Home Remedies Thread".

Supposedly putting a warm wet tea bag over a toothache helps the pain.

One bar of Ivory soap, wrap in paper towel and rubber band, place under bottom sheet of bed. No more leg cramps.
YEP!! I thought so, too, but two who had leg cramp problems swore by it.
?????????? At least the price is right.

A cloth soaked in grandma's saliva will effectively wash and cure the thrush from a baby's mouth.

Vick's Salve rubbed on the bottoms of your feet, covered by socks overnight will stop a cough.

Duct tape over a wart will make it go away. I tried this, 4 days in, wart fell out.

Hydrogen peroxide, about a teaspoon per quart of water, for watering houseplants will eat away the dead and rotted roots.
