Some things come up from time to time that may require an at-home remedy. However, a lot of them make us scratch our heads and think, "This is so weird!" You'd be surprised at the number of things you have in your fridge or pantry that can help even the simplest of things. This includes bad breath, nausea, and even a spider bite!\r\n\r\nSometimes you don't need an over-the-counter medicine or to go to the doctor. If you have any of these things in your house, you may be just fine! Check out these 11 crazy home remedies our grandparents used that actually work!\r\n1. Bad Breath\r\n\r\n\r\nDon't have any chewing gum or mints on hand, but have bad breath? Check your fridge for some celery and chew this instead. It will help you get rid of bad breath fast!\r\n2. Earache\r\n\r\n\r\nEaraches are the worst! Squeeze lemon juice onto a q-tip and put it in your ear. Alternatively, you may drop some in your ear with a dropper. The lemon may begin stabilizing the pH levels in your ear and make them feel a lot better!\r\n3. Hair Loss\r\n\r\n\r\nNettle leaves can be great for helping with hair loss! A nettle leaf contains calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and many other important vitamins. It's important not to use it too much, but it can definitely be helpful in naturally restoring any lost hair.\r\n4. Menopause\r\n\r\n\r\nLadies, going through menopause? Yams have a plethora of nutritional value that can help you combat the discomfort menopause brings. With both Vitamin A and vitamin C mixed together, this will help to balance out your hormones. It helps to lower your cholesterol, too!\r\n5. Arthritis\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you're struggling with arthritis of any kind, this may help alleviate any discomfort. Soak some golden raisins overnight in a few spoonfuls of gin. As a result, this may reduce swelling and ease the pain you're experiencing.\r\n\r\nRead onto the NEXT page for more bizarre remedies that actually work!\r\n\r\n\r\n6. Motion Sickness\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you're not an olive lover, you might want to become one! Olives are high in tannins which can stop the production of too much saliva. This works in that when you feel like you're going to be sick, having too much saliva in your mouth can be enough to make you toss your cookies.\r\n7. Indigestion\r\n\r\n\r\nDried apricots can help the body process and digest food a lot better because of their dietary fiber! Say 'goodbye' to heartburn medicine!\r\n8. UTI\r\n\r\n\r\nAdd baking soda to a glass of water and drink it. This helps to relieve some of the symptoms associated with a UTI. This concoction works by making your bladder more alkaline. This, in turn, prevents any harmful bacteria from multiplying.\r\n9. Spider Bite\r\n\r\n\r\nOkay, this sounds crazy, but stay with me. Wrap a raw sliced potato with a bandage or something similar to the affected area for 10-12 minutes. This has been tossed around as an at-home remedy for some time now. One blogger even shares their own experience with it and says it truly worked for her husband. The couple would visit the doctor after her husband was bitten by a spider. The doctor confirmed that the bite was perfectly healed up after using this method.\r\n10. Sunburn\r\n\r\n\r\nAloe Vera is reigns supreme when it comes to alleviating the pain from sunburn. If you're lucky enough to get your hands on an actual Aloe Vera leaf, cut one of the big leaves off and then peel the skin back off the leaf. Take the gel out of the leaf and then apply it to your skin. You will likely feel instant relief from the cool sensation of it. The next best option is to grab an Aloe Vera gel from any store.\r\n11. Nausea\r\n\r\n\r\nFresh ginger will eliminate any nauseous sensation you have. Whether its fresh ginger powder or ginger water... ginger is the way to go for this!\r\n\r\nHave you tried any of these crazy remedies?
