Re: Neti Pot vs. Sinus Irrigation Bottle

Well, it seems like you just cited the difference! I use a Neti Pot (and thanks for reminding me, not often enough! ) Your description about the irrigation bottle doesn't sound appealing to me. The Neti Pot is very gentle but kobe is right -- if you put too much salt in it can burn so be careful! (And the water can't be too hot and the salt should not be iodized.) It's really a relatively small investment -- I'd give it a try for sure. It can take a bit of getting used to but if it doesn't come out of the other nostril easily, just tilt your head forward a bit more.
