Would you believe you probably have a few items at home that can effectively relieve your cold symptoms? Check out the 6 home remedies below that may help bring your stubborn cough under control.

4. Lemon and honey. Another age-old remedy is lemon and honey. The lemon helps break up the phlegm, while the honey soothes the cough. Check this out in action below.
