Can Pickle Juice Cure a Hangover?
Shooting shilajit resin? Lemon juice in your pits? In honor of St. Patrick's Day, one of our favorite drink-y holidays, we test the weirdest hangover cures
Our experiment contains one minor variable: I mistakenly instruct Emily to keep the lemon slices in her armpits, not rub them on her armpits. "It was kind of awkward because you just have to keep your arms clamped down for a while," she says, making me feel like the world's worst editor. "I left them under there for about 45 minutes. They did nothing, obviously. They didn't even make me smell like a lemon."
So she reformulates her strategy. "I used the rest of the lemon to squeeze into my water, which was actually really refreshing and helped me feel better," she says. And the armpit trick? "I would never do this again."
