My mom uses one regularly, but I never really thought I could stand the water up my nose. I thought it'd be horrible like when you get water in your nose while swimming... but it wasn't like that at all.
Anyway, I'm sharing my love for the Neti pot so that those of you out there who have thought about trying it, might actually go get one! I used it for a few days and chase my congestion away!
Things to remember...
*Use warm water.
*Don't use table salt (it will dry you out).
*Don't do it if one or both nostrils are completely blocked. (otherwise you might have ear issues).
