Masking Up!

Today for Who Knew Wednesday we shared on the Knox County Fair and our Stay Safe with Big Blue giveaway.

We also shared more tips from the Who Knew Book, here’s what they were:

If you get nauseated every time you ride in a car, boat, or train, take some lemon wedges with you. Suck on them as you ride to relieve nausea.

In the peak of sore throat season, get a reprieve by gargling with this spicy mix: 1/3 cup tomato juice, 1/2 cup hot water, 5 drops pepper sauce. Gargle. It works even better if you gargle with lukewarm saltwater first. If you prefer sweet to salty, fill a shot glass with honey, then warm it in the microwave for about 10 seconds on high. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, then drink.

If your eyes are itchy, try this quick fix to cut down on your misery: Rub a small amount of baby shampoo on your eyelids. It should reduce your symptoms dramatically.

If your children are prone to swimmer’s ear, a bacterial infection of the ear canal, take this precaution when they’ve been in the pool: Dab a solution of one part vinegar and five parts warm water into each ear three times a day. The vinegar will ward off bacteria and keep your kids’ ears pain-free.

Hold my heart when it’s split right open
Turn these eyes to my soul protector,
Break the will of this born infector.
