Crazy or Not? Hiccup Remedies

Get a glass of water, double up a paper towel and put it over the mouth of the glass, and then sip the water through it.

Hold your breath.

Hold your breath, pinch your nose, and push down on your diaphragm.

Stand on your head.

Drink a glass of water backwards.

Breathe slowly into a paper bag.

Squeeze tightly on the soft fleshy part of your earlobes. (?)

Drink a glass of water slowly without breathing.

Take a mouthful of water or other beverage then bend over from the middle and swallow (sounds like a recipe for choking if you ask me).

Bite into a lemon.

Drink a shot of vinegar.

Eat a spoonful of mustard.

Get a mouthful of water and then press your fingers into your ears.
