Your best way to get rid of hiccups? Maybe it’s drinking water upside dow. A spoonful of sugar under the tongue. Or suck on a lemon wedge…I usually plugged one ear, suck the water down (like with a straw) and held my breathe. I know extreme, but it works for me. Well now, scientists say..

This works 99% of the time:

1. Take a deep breath and hold it for 10 seconds.

2. Without exhaling, take in more air… hold for 5 seconds

3. Without exhaling again, take in all the air you can and hold it for as long as you can.
