Neti Pot Solution for sinus irrigation by Quizzy

Postby Quizmistress » Fri Sep 12, 2008 1:21 am

Fill a clean 1 qt. container with tap water. To it add 1 teaspoon of baking soda
& 1 teaspoon of pickling or kosher salt. Cover & shake to dissolve.
Use it as often as your comfortable.
The shelf life of this mixture is 7 days, then it can be thrown out & a new batch made.
As you become accustom to the solution, with each batch you can slowly increase
the amount of salt used up to 3 teaspoons (only increase the salt, NOT the baking soda).

Put as much solution as your going to use in your Neti Pot or other device & rinse your boogers away! :wink:
JUST REMEMBER TO BREATH THROUGH YOUR MOUTH! :shock:

Just a couple additional notes.
I used Quizzy's recipe and it was spot on.
Just make sure that your water temp is not too hot or too cold cause then it will hurt and also, it is a bit trickier if you have a deviated septum. Finally, if your head is not tilted just so, it can feel like you are drowning a bit as the water drains down your throat.

Bump.

Thanks Quizzy. It's time to get mine out. (Tiz the season.) And, this "recipe" will save me the money of having to buy the stuff.

All I do is keep a container of Sea Salt next to the pot in the bathroom. I dump in a small amount of salt, fill with water in the shower so it's not too hot or too cold and I do my thing. I've never considered mixing up solution in advance. I don't like room temp water in my nose, I prefer closer to body temp, that's why I mix it up fresh in the shower.

The baking soda neutralizes any additions that the local utility may make to your water supply.

And sea salt can contain impurities, thats why my allergist suggests pickling or kosher. YMMV

I'm on a well so I don't know if that would be better or worse.

Hmm... The hippies I bought it from recommended the sea salt. But then they think that Mars is heating up because of SUVs so what do they know. I might switch over to a mix of those instead. I just don't like my neti solution to be cold. I prefer mixing it fresh in the morning in the shower.

Perfect!

Much less 'harsh' than just warm water. I think the baking soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) would be a buffer, like it is in many other solutions if HS chemistry class serves...

Thank goodness for the recipe swap for booger rinse recipes. Our board rocks.
