      Here's another old-time remedy (recommended by my oncology doctor when I was undergoing oral cancer treatment) that's good for a mouthwash:

      1 Litre water
      1 Tbsp baking soda
      1/2 tsp salt

      It's practically free, but I add a little lemon juice, just for the flavor. Peppermint is good, too. Other flavors? Whatever you like. You're the boss when making this sort of thing at home.

      Kindest regards,

      That's the way my grandmother cleaned her dog's eyes and ears, also. I had forgotten all about this.

      Yeah, it comes in powdered form at some pharmacies (I boil water and add about one teaspoon to a condiment-sized squeeze bottle [once the solution has cooled] -- keeps my dog's ears clean as a whistle) -- but I too remember the eye cup and the boric acid wash -- great stuff!

      My one eye was feeling "scratchy" today, so I tried my mom's old remedy. Sterile water with 1% boric acid (not easy to find any more) and 0.5% sodium chloride. Fixed it right up. Them old gals knew what they were doing when it came to home remedies. Chicken soup ("Jewish penicillin") , tea with bourbon, and a couple of other's, and you're good! Maybe later on I'll soak my feet in some warm water and epson salts. That was one of grandma Toman's favorites.
