Pedialyte, a liquid meant for dehydrated infants suffering from vomiting and diarrhea, also works wonders after a long night of partying, the New York Daily News reported.

College and graduate students in Chicago have asked a delivery company to start carrying Pedialyte, which fans swear by as a cure for hangovers.
