What Grandma Used to Say About Leg Cramps and Running Cramps

Grandma's Cures for running cramps and leg cramps . . . Grandma believed that placing a bar of soap between the bed sheets at night would rid a person of leg cramps. How or why this works remains a mystery today, but many people say it does.

While I'm not so sure about this - I do know that a common sense approach works - here's a few of the tips and tactics from The Ultimate Cramp Busting Guide:
