Simple Remedy for Sore Throat

My son had a sore throat a few days ago. He complained that it was hard for him to swallow the food, but I guess it wasn't too bad because he was still okay and had no fever. I told him to gargle warm water with salt in it, and I guess it really works because he is not complaining with his throat now. Well, I have learned this simple remedy at home from my mother. When we were still kids and had a sore throat, our mother had just told us to gargle one glass of warm water and put one tablespoon of salt in it. It helps to decrease the swelling throat and reduce the pain as well.
