With sinus an drainage down throat, was inflame when breathe upper airways last 10 days is why went, no sore throat. Or sneezing or plug nose. But crap go down head an when breathe, it sound terrible, not in lungs at all but throat, got antibiotics an better, also high blood pressure pills, but got what I think call a nesi pot flush kit, put bottle water. In a speacil plastic bottle an sinus saline powder, an didn't do right first but 2nd did an works great, but need do more as only done it twice in 4 days, u don't breathe, hold breathe, lean forward over sink, squirt water up one nostril an u have to open mouth for to work, like vent on gas can an come out other nostril an back flush other nostril,unbelieavable it works great, an help lot, if did twice a day. Help lot, u have use bottle water, tap water has bacteria, an clesn good after. The bottle, my biggest concern is I not get applicater clean enough an get infection from unsterile applicater. Not sure what happen if bacteria in nose from it

I've used a Neti pot for years. No need for bottled water or special saline solution. 1/4 teaspoon of table salt and tap water. Shake and put in microwave for 15 seconds to warm it up. Between the microwave and the salt there should be no problem with bacteria. Why complicate matters and worry unnecessarily? Relax.

Well if you're using bowels it might take more to sanitize.

I use them often and they work great. The powder is saline. Use either distilled water or bottle water. Immediately rinse in hot water. Honestly I've found that using the sinus rinse while in the shower is much better.
You can sanitize it by pouring boiling water on it and letting it sit or can microwave it. The instructions usually say what's the best way to sanitize it

This is what I use

Leave bottled water on the counter so the water is room temperature. You're issue sounds like mine. I have terrible acute sinusitis. Which means my sinuses are inflamed and full. They are so bad If I drink or eat too much dairy I get an instant sinus infection. Im talking within minutes.
One set of drs wants to scrape the bones around all sinus cavities to solve the issue.

I can't use a neti pot yet. But use that simply saline by arm and hammer daily with good results. This stuff is an aerosol saline, just spray it up your nose. It keeps my allergies at bay. I have chronic sinusitis and have had surgery in my sinuses.

I had some blood clots here a few weeks ago and had to get my sinuses cauterized. Sinus issues suck!!!!

Mine are terrible. I've learned the hard way to minimize inflammatory foods. I need a second opinion now that our governor is letting us see our drs

Suck it up pay the price and buy a Navage system. Has its own pre measured salt pods to use. Haven't had a sinus infection since I started using one for 2 years now. I use to use table salt and a syringe for years and had sinus problems.

I use distilled water w/1/4 tsp salt and baking soda, warm in mw and use the neti pot. Cheap and very effective.

I had chronic sinus problems for over 35 years
I would get a couple sinus infections every spring and every fall.
I changed doctors and my new one suggested I try a netti pot and I have cut back the infections to only one a year and when I start getting stopped up I use the netti pot 3 X a day and it clears up any infection starting.
Itís a lot better than getting your sinuses dwelled. Thats why l got a new doctor

Placing 3ml or a squeeze of Betadine into the 8 oz bottle of saline mix works wonders.
Having sinus infections and unable to cure them, I tried this:
NeilMed sinus rinse kit.
Mix in the 8 oz bottle as recommended using salt/baking soda packet.
Add 3ml or a squirt of Betadine.
Squirt into one nostril. Pinch off other nostril.
Squirt into other nostril and pinch off opposite nostril.
Lift head.
Solution will drain into sinus cavity.
Let sit for 30 seconds to one minute in sinus cavity.
Repeat until Betadine solution is empty.
I did this for 1 month daily.
All signs of infection were gone completely without antibiotics.
I also mix my own salt to baking soda solution in a one gallon milk jug to save a few dollars.
BETADINE microbicides kill bacteria (both gram-positive and gram-negative), fungi, viruses, protozoa and yeasts.
