Speaking of Neti Pots....

Quick post. I thought it funny to see this as the top link on Yahoo this morning after my mentioning it two days ago. NY Times neti pot story My sinuses do feel better already. Hopefully I'll be back to diving in the next few days.

That is so funny--yesterday @ the drive-thru (I work at a drugstore) a lady asked me if we had a nasal bidet, I answered no. Then she mentioned Oprah and I was like, oh a Neti pot? She said yes, I said we have those---a sale was made & we were both happy. (I'm still resistant to trying one...my mom has one and says it's great)

It's much less irritating to do than one would think. I don't know how well it really cleans out the upper sinuses, but things are starting to feel better, it felt like I had a baseball imbedded behind my nose earlier.

When I was teaching my wife how to clear her mask, she sucked the water through her nose the first few times.
She was using her mask as a giant neti pot. LOL She thought the correct way was a little easier but not much.

What amazes me is that using a neti pot is nowhere near as traumatic as getting water up your nose while cleaning a mask, although I gotta admit the first couple of pots were a bit difficult.
