Hiccups are THE WORST. And until now, the main ways to cure them is to hold your breath and release slowly a million times, or be scared, or hold your nose while chugging water.


Now scientists have developed the “HiccAway”  straw which they say is a “forced inspiratory suction and swallow tool”.  It is an L-shaped straw with an adjustable pressure valve on one end, according to the Guardian. Sipping water out of this rigid straw will immediately cure the hiccups for most people. It costs $14.

Study results found that it worked in almost 92 percent of cases. Just over 90 percent of participants said they found it more convenient than other home remedies, while 183 of 203 participants said it gave better results.
