The 10 best ways to lose your voice range from screaming raucously to downing several ice-cold beverages rapidly.
While most techniques require one or two household supplies, some can be done without materials and are best practiced in a loud place or at home.

If your voice returns slightly after a few hours, you can repeat the method in shorter intervals until it has gone again.
