Listerine can help to kill germs that cause sore throats and it helps to keep you gums and teeth healthy as well.

Gargling with warm salt water would help more though to cure a sore throat than Listerine would but Listerine is a good thing to use for sore throats as well.

Another home remedy for curing sore throats is gargling with some apple cider vinegar as apple cider vinegar is a natural antibiotic and can help kill the bacteria that causes a sore throat.

I've had great success in getting rid of a sore throat when gargling with warm salt water as well as apple cider vinegar.

Using both the apple cider vinegar and warm salt water helped to get rid of my sore throats within 4 days instead of the normal 7 to 10 days that it used to take my sore throats to cure.

Listerine helps kill bacteria in your mouth and so gargling with Listerine can help get rid of a sore throat.

You can also gargle with salt water, apple cider vinegar and even hydrogen peroxide.

Sipping on some hot tea with hone is also good for a sore throat.
