    No offense man......

    Sooo you can snort water but leaning forward and tilting your head head left or right and flushing your sinuses is a no-go? Dude, no offense but do you realize you could die from inhaling SMALL amounts of water?

    You are literally on the edge of aspirating the water (inhaling) or whats called "Dry Drowning".

    I'll stick with the Netti pot.

    The pot doesn't get the water back far enough to really help me out. I have to get it back to the point where you "feel the burn," and a tiny bit runs down into your mouth. It's easily controlled.

    I suppose I should have expanded on the "I can't do" part. If you've got something that works for you, then do that.

    I've been using the Neti-Pot for years. Just makes sense. Just have to relax and let it happen.

    seems like it would be hard to do but it really isn't. it isn't terrible but it does take some getting used to. weird but not painful, and if your doing it right you can get a tiny bit in your mouth. and it really helps!

    The nettipot people also make a squeeze bottle thing that works better, and uses the same solution. Shane, what did they do to your sinuses (surgery-wise)?

    Lol I have always been bothered by a runny nose... The simple fix was to buy Kleenex stock

    cute story

    after my vasectomy one of the girls in our office, got real curious and wanted to know what happens to the stuff now that the tubes were cut.... I told I wasn't really sure...but I thought the body just absorbed it..... But my nose runs alot more....lmao the look on her face was priceless, especially when I covered on nostril and asked if she wanted a sample

    I have had great luck with Simply Saline. It comes in a bottle with a spray nozzle on it so you can direct it right into the nostril. Helps alot with post nasel drip I get also.
