It's a llittle tricky but you get really good with practice. You fill the neti-pot with the salty water, you tilt your head sideways over the sink and you slowly pour the water into the one nostril that's higher and the water then flows out the other one. The first nostril you should pour the water into is the one that is the least stuffy. The salty water will "break down" what's jammed in your nose that has you unable to breathe in the first place. This procedure is so simple even my 10 year old nephew can do it. He also suffers from allergies and I thought I'd never get him to use the neti-pot but it turns out he thinks it's way cool that you can pour water into one side of your nose and have it come out the other. It's trippy, for sure!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

It'll help flush the membranes and make your sinuses feel better. I don't have a mucous either, just a sinus problem related to allergies. Flushing it all out with saltwater relieves the problem. Basically, if I go more than a week without surfing I have to flush out my sinus cavity with the neti-pot. It's alot more fun having the waves do it for me but lately I haven't been out much.

Neti pot is great. I use it as well. I am prone to sinus infections in the winter and the neti pot had been preventing me from getting them too bad. I'd suggest trying that as well.

Kym, I'm surprised with the dry air there that you have sinus issues. My brother was so bad in Philadelphia that the ENT doctor suggested surgery. Once he moved to LA he's been a different person. Not one sinus issue whatsoever.

When he moved to LA. He was supposed to get the surgery for years and kept putting it off. Then he moved to LA for a job offer and has been perfectly fine ever since. It's the dry air out there compared to Philly.

No dry air here. I live only one mile from the ocean (how lucky am I!) so we have moisture. Nothing like the humidity in other areas but we do have mornings that can be so heavy with the marine layer the air is a fine mist.
