Popular for its soothing effect, saltwater gargling can be helpful in treating laryngitis. This remedy is cheap, quick, and easy to use. Saltwater destroys bacteria and creates an environment in which bacteria cannot thrive. Use sea salt for your gargle, as highly processed salts may not contain the required elements. To prepare a saltwater mixture, dissolve a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water. Gargle the mixture whenever symptoms run high. Be careful not to drink the mixture, and avoid contact with the eyes.
