    There is no water up your nose feeling at all. It feels good and very natural though it may take a few times to get used to it. Just a little awkward more than anything else.

    Also, I use a sports top water bottle instead that way I don't have to worry about sensortard breakage and I can toss them out once in awhile.


    So, a Neti Pot is basically a tea pot that you stick in your nose?
    Is not to be held accuntable for peeling errors.

    Yes, except it's filled with cold salt water instead of hot tea.

    I have BAD seasonal allergies and am terribly prone to sinus infections following any colds, minor or major. I do the occasional saline spray, but I'd consider trying this on a regular basis. We sell it at my job and I get a discount.

    It's a douche for your nose more so than a tea pot. And I DO NOT use cold water, I don't think that would be fun at all.

    I just wanted to add that you may still have some issues with a neti pot. It takes some mild getting used to for sure.

    When you start using it you may be so plugged you get nothing to come out or maybe a drip, drip, drip. It takes about a week to get things flowing and working smoothly and you need to use it daily.

    I have added mine to the shower routine as I have found it best no to stop using it just cause I think I feel better.

    I swear by it, I have many friends that do as well so give it a chance and let me know what you think.

    I've heard of these, but I don't use one. I do occasionally use a blue syringe, though. It helps with my chronic sinusitis, and I would do it more often if it didn't get me all wet and mess up my pimple medicine.

    I've read that cold water and cold drinks are the worst things one can do for their sinus troubles, I would only use warm water myself.

    Perhaps I just have an odd sense of what is comfortable.

    Or perhaps I have no convenient resource to heat the water.

    You're supposed to try to get the water to about the same temperature as your body, as that makes it less noticeable and therefore less uncomfortable.

    I'll be honest, the thought of shoving water through my nose made me think I'd be the retard that ended up on 1000 Ways to Die from somehow misusing the neti pot.

    ... But I do have bad allergies, so I'll consider attempting to survive it.
