I actually learned a long time ago that all the remedies designed to make us feel better EXTEND the length of a cold.
So, I use them as little as possible, preferring natural "intervention" instead.
Things like these:
Gargling with salt water,
using my neti pot,
homemade chicken & vegetable soup made from homemade chicken bone broth,
hot tea (when I'm sick, I make mine from ginger root) or hot lemon water,
lots of extra vitamin C and some extra D3,
as many fluids as I can push.
And then I "give in" and use Nyquil gel caps so I can sleep at nite.
