Hic, Hic. Cure annoying hiccups without resorting to folklore remedies.

The hiccups are an annoying thing that happens to many of us from time to time. Folklore comes up with a wide range of weird and wonderful remedies for the common convulsions including:

  • Holding your breath
  • Getting someone to shock you….BOO!
  • Putting a cold key down your back
  • Drinking a glass or water whilst standing on your head

None of these have ever worked for us but one remedy always works time after time. But what is it….


Next time you get the hiccups pour a small amount of wine or malt vinegar into a glass and drink it. Once the vinegar hits your throat it cures the involuntary spasms and away goes the dreaded hic, hics.
