Sore throat after intubation

After intubation during surgery, what are some ways to reduce a sore throat? I tried Googling and found only recommendations for different types of tubes and topical steroids. I'm looking for something you can find in a household (gargling? lots of cold drinks? yogurt?).

I'm also looking for things that would, conversely, greatly irritate a recently intubated throat.

Thank you!
