5 Old-School Remedies That Need to Make A Comeback
1. Lemons for Motion Sickness - Looking for ways to survive a rough road trip? Pack lemons! It's the perfect way to reduce car sickness. According to dietitian Erin Palinski-Wade, "Motion sickness causes you to produce excess saliva, which can upset your stomach and trigger a nauseated feeling. Sucking on a lemon, which causes your mouth to pucker from the sore taste, can reduce the production of saliva, which in turn can help to prevent the nausea associated with it." Also lemon water may work, too, and even sniffing the refreshing scent of lemon can help.

Duct Tape for Warts - Originally invented during World War II, duct tape being used to cure warts is a low-tech method that's actually been endorsed by the American Academy of Dermatology and has research to back it up.
