Now, come on admit it, we have all had one too many drinks on the odd occasion and experienced that morning after the night before feeling. But, what actually helps soak up the remaining booze the morning after? Here are my tips that myself and my better half have tried and tested.

Pure and simple. You will be more than likely feeling the effects of dehydration when you first wake up, so your first go to may be a glass of the clear stuff. No, not more vodka, water. One of the quickest and simplest things you can do after a heavy night.
An all day breakfast

If you can even manage to get out of bed the morning after and muster enough energy to cook a fry up, then an all day breakfast is the way to go. As long as the smell does not set your stomach churning while cooking it.
Pack in the vitamins

This may not be your most obvious thought the morning after, but taking a decent multivitamin supplement may be just what the doctor ordered for blitzing away the rest of the booze. Some vitamins today may well just keep the doctor away.
Eat a banana

Alcohol can make your body retain water by blocking the production of a hormone that makes your body hold on to the clear stuff. This leads to dehydration and the loss of electrolytess such as sodium and potasssium. But the good news is that bananas are a rich source of potassium and can help replenish your body's lost stores. Not to mention, a quick and easy food to eat. Be sure to keep your fruit bowl topped up with this potassium packed fruit.
Go back to bed

If all else fails and you still feel like you're stuck at the bar then there is only one thing for it: your bed is calling you. Returning to slumberland may just well be the best thing to do, along with taking some paracetomol to ease that hammer in your head. You can then drift the day away and kid yourself that the previous night was all just a bad dream. Assuming of course that you ever managed to make it out of bed in the first place.
