How can I clear my throat tickle?

I have a tickle at the back of my throat, way up high... just where it triggers my gag reflex. It's like I've half-swallowed a hair and it's been bothering me all day. I've tried the usual methods of getting rid of it - drinking lots of water, coughing and clearing my throat (i.e. trying to "hock" it up) and IT'S STILL THERE. Does anyone have any other home remedies for me to try before I give in to my urge to purge?

Note: This isn't a diagnose-my-cold type question; I really do think it's a bit of hair or something. And now I have to stop talking about it before I really do throw up. Please hope me.
