Try the paper towel trick
Place a single layer of paper towel over the top of a glass, then drink through the towel. You’ll have to “pull” harder with your diaphragm to suck up the water, and concentrated gulping counteracts spasmodic muscle movements of hiccups. These hiccups are just one of many strange body reactions. Learn the explanations behind some more bizarre body phenomena.

If you don’t have paper towels, you can still get rid of hiccups with just plain water. Try slowly sipping or gargling with some H20 for hiccup relief. The contractions from swallowing the water help to stop the spasms in the diaphragm, according to health insurance provider Blue Cross Blue Shield.
