You can end up spending a lot of cash on expensive creams and medicines to treat everyday ailments - but sometimes just using items in your store cupboard will do the trick.



Internet users have been sharing their best home remedies online, ranging from the seemingly sensible to the plain bizarre.







If you suffer from chronic smelly feet, vodka may be the answer to your prayers - but not by downing shots of the stuff. 



The experts at Nature Hacks say that all you have to do is soak a cloth in vodka and use it to wipe for your feet.



The high alcohol content will kill the bacteria growing on your feet, which causes the strong odour that some people are cursed with.



Meanwhile, toothpaste can be used on insect bites to help soothe the itchiness by cooling down the bite. It'll also help draw out the the fluids from beneath the skin and help to reduce the swelling.



Some anti-fungal creams from the chemist can be expensive, but one Imgur user says that your mouthwash could do the same trick in treating your toenails. 







Simpy soak your toes in a tub of mouthwash, allowing the antiseptic properties of the mouthwash to work its magic. 



While horseradish might be a more usual accompaniment to your steak, it can apparently be used as a massage oil. 



One internet user advises mixing a tablespoon of the condiment in a cup of olive oil. Let it sit for 30 minutes before applying it to the problem area. 



Aspirin is said to have a number of health benefits - with one being treating acne. Crush an aspirin and mix it in a small amount of water to form a paste. The simply apply to the your spot. 







A number of home remedies for earache have been recommended online. One hack, explained by the Home Remedies blog, involves using olive oil or coconut oil. 



Firstly, warm a small amount of the oil until it becomes lukewarm. Then put four drops of the oil into the ear using a pipette. 



Another hack that features on the blog involves using onions, which contain powerful antibacterial and antiseptic properties. 



Extract the juice of an onion by crushing it up, and then heat it up until it becomes lukewarm. Put two or three drops into the ear.



A rather strange hack shared on Imgur involves using porridge to treat arthritis pain.



The user suggests mixing two cups of oats with one cup of water and warming it up in the microwave.



Cool for a minute, before applying to your hands - it will apparently provide a soothing effect. 



Olives are recommended to help cure travel sickness, as the contain tannin which can reduce saliva production - helping to see off feelings of nausea.



Meanwhile, eating parsley could help you get rid of bad breath. The chlorophyll in the herb can help neutralise the odour. 



Teabags can be used to treat burns - place two or three wet bags on the affected area. The tannic acid inside the teabags will draw away the heat.



Vinegar is recommended by some internet users for treating bruises as it increases blood flow at the skin's surface. Soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply to the area. 



Honey is known to have numerous effects for the skin, but one more specific home remedy involves treating blemishes.  



One Imgur users suggests covering the blemish with a dab of honey, before sticking a plaster over it.



The honey is said to kill the bacteria and speed up the healing process.
