A bladder infection is an uncomfortable, painful condition. In most situations, curing a bladder infection requires a visit to the doctor and prescription antibiotics. However, there are certain home remedies that sometimes cure bladder infections. One home remedy involves using vinegar to cure the pain and inflammation associated with having a bladder infection. The vinegar helps fight infection by raising the acidity of the urine. It is a healthier, more natural alternative that may work even faster than prescription medications.
Making a home vinegar cure for bladder infections is simple. You will need only a few basic items that most of us already have in our homes. Combine 2 tbsp 1. apple cider vinegar, 2 tsp. cinnamon, a pinch of kosher salt, and 8 to 10 ounces of hot water. Drink the mixed well remedy several times a day until the symptoms of the bladder infection have disappeared.

How It Tastes
Japanese Cold Remedies
The flavor will be similar to hot apple cider and the salt, sugar, and cinnamon help get rid of the vinegar flavor. The hot water helps the sugar, salt, and cinnamon dissolve. However, if it stills seems as if any of these ingredients have not mixed well, stirring again before each drink will help you to avoid an unpleasant taste. You should not be able to taste the flavor of vinegar in any way. If you can still taste even the slightest hint of vinegar, simply add more salt, sugar or cinnamon until the mixture tastes exactly like hot apple cider.

Vinegar & Honey
You may also want to try drinking a mixture of vinegar, honey, and cold water to get rid of a bladder infection. Simply mix together 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar and a tsp. of honey in an 8 ounce glass of cold water. Drinking this 4 to 5 times daily can help get rid of the bladder infection quickly. The honey will help mask the flavor of the vinegar, making this an easily tolerated drink.
