Ever Tried One of These?
After a few days of this crud going around, I had to do something. So, I bought a nose cleaner outer...or whatever you want to call it. I was pretty excited to try it out when I got home. You're not supposed to use tap water. You need to use distilled water and it's supposed to be warm. I ended up using it cold. (Next time it'll be warm)
I gotta say, it worked pretty well and felt great for the first 10-15 minutes afterwards and today, I don't have the sinus pressure that I had before using it. I plan to do another treatment when I get home.
The key is, use half the bottle for one nostril and the other half for the other nostril. I didn't do that. I used it all in one nostril. Had I not felt like a kid on Christmas day after opening their favorite present and wanting to play with it right away, I would have read the damn directions. Either way, I think it helped a lot. The pressure is going today and I feel a lot better.
For my money, this is the way to go if you're feeling stuffed up or your nose is runny or whatever. This cost about $20 at Walgreen's and it comes with 30 packets of wash solution that you just add (1 packet) to the bottle of water.
I was going to get me using it on video but didn't want to gross people out. Turns out, it wasn't that bad. If you're feeling like crap and tired of ALMOST sneezing every 2 minutes, this is a must.
I give it 2 nostrils up!
