1. To sober-up

2. Bad breath:

Put a few pieces of tea leaves into your mouth three times a day, chew them, and spit them out. This will leave your mouth feeling fresh. Continue this for three days and the bad breath will be cured.

3. A toothache:

Put a peach pit in the oven. Once it is hot, put it on the sore tooth and bite on it a few times. The toothache will go away.
