  1. I remember my father telling me that as a child when he had a cold his mother used to put sliced onions in his wool socks before bedtime.

  2. Every year during flu season I sit an onion suspended in a cup in my kitchen window. The onion absorbs the flu virus and removes it from your home.

    Does it work? I have not had flu in over 15 years.

    • How do you prepare the onion for this? Do you put it in the cup whole? Do you cut it in half? Which side is up? Do you put water in the cup?

      Thanks in advance!

  3. I can attest that it does work. I remember as a little boy my mom would put an onion in my sock to bring down a fever. It worked every time. Just recently (last year) my son was in the hospital in ICU and they kept giving him Tylenol to reduce his fever. The fever would not relent. I remembered what was done to me as a boy and asked the nurse if the next day I could bring an onion and put on the bottom of his feet. The nurse in turn asked the doctor if it was alright. Permission was given to me to do so just to « appease » me. I brought the onion and applied it to the bottom of his foot. Sure enough within a couple of hours the fever was gone. Sometimes those old home remedies are just the best for medical illness and injury.

  4. Just do not sniff your onioned bedroom sock. You might cry and got to sleep wet. Do that yoga move sometime before or after.
    As always wash your hands especially after handling those onions.

  5. Both feet or just either foot? (« All right », not « alright »!) And I reiterate a previous question: Why not just eat the onions?

  7. When I was little my mother also put onions in my socks for fever..she had special socks white with lace and i could pick out the color ribbon to tie around the ankle to keep them on..I was sick alot as a made it special with the white sock, lace trim and a pretty ribbon tied in a bow!!!
