➡️ 1. Gargle Warm Salt Water
This is a classic home remedy that feels nice and can help get rid of mucus that has accumulated in the back of your throat. It works because sodium helps to break up the disulfide bonds within mucus and thins it out for removal. It can also help to soothe a sore throat as well.

➡️ 2. Try the Huff Coughing Technique
Huff coughing is a forced expiration technique that is an alternative to deep coughing and is also useful in getting rid of mucus and phlegm. All you have to do is take a breath that is slightly deeper than your normal tidal volume breath, then use your diaphragm and the muscles in your stomach to make a series of three rapid exhalations with an open airway.

➡️ 3. Drink Plenty of Fluids
You probably grew up hearing your parents tell you to drink plenty of water every time you were sick or had a cold. It may sound cliche, but they were 100% correct because it actually does help improve the functionality of pretty much all the major systems of the body. 

➡️ 4. Keep Your Head Elevated
This is especially important while sleeping. As previously mentioned, a post-nasal drip is one of the most common causes of excess phlegm — especially while lying down. It causes secretions to accumulate in the back of your throat which leaves you with that uncomfortable feeling.

➡️ 5. Take a Hot Bath or Shower
In this case, the main benefit is to inhale the steam that is produced by warm water. Steam acts as a natural way to help break up and get rid of mucus because it consists of tiny liquid aerosol particles that are suspended within the air. The process is simple. Simply breathe in and out to allow the humidity from the steam to enter the airways and work to loosen up mucus so that it can be removed.

➡️ 6. Keep Your Allergies Under Control
Not only can seasonal allergies cause a runny nose, itchy throat, and watery eyes, they can also cause excessive amounts of mucus and phlegm to build up as well. So keeping your allergies in check is a no-brainer. Make sure that you’re using your typical prescription or over the counter allergy medications in order to alleviate these symptoms.

➡️ 7. Avoid Irritants
Things like pollution, chemicals, and even certain fragrances can trigger the body to produce excessive amounts of mucus. So if you notice that any of these are making your symptoms worse, just try to avoid it if possible.

➡️ 8. Eat Foods That Are Good for the Respiratory System
Anecdotal studies found that certain foods and drinks can be very effective in getting rid of mucus and phlegm. Let’s look at spicy foods as an example. Spices such as chili and cayenne pepper contain substances that can stimulate and clear up your sinuses. This can help make removing secretions much easier by blowing your nose or coughing.

➡️ 9. Use Eucalyptus Oil
The eucalyptus tree originated in Australia and has been a source of food for wildlife for centuries. It wasn’t until later on that humans discovered its positive health benefits, which include treating sinus congestion, common cold, fever, and other respiratory ailments.

➡️ 10. Take the Right Medications
The most effective way to get rid of mucus is to take the medications that are prescribed directly by your doctor. This is especially true for those who have underlying respiratory conditions.
