Last night, we were watching a rerun of a rerun of Oprah. I just love that Dr.Oz. When he explained how a neti pot could clean out your sinuses, Matt just knew we needed to try it. A member of Oprah's staff had been using one for awhile and she said it was life changing. So I got on the internet to see where I could get us one of these life altering pots. Turns out, they have become so popular that the demand is outweighing the supply. They are going for about $30.00 on Ebay. Seeing as how that seems a little high for a nostril cleaner outer thing, my very clever husband decided that we could just make one ourselves. First he tried a baby bottle with the nipple tip cut off. No such luck. Next up was one of my creamer pitchers. Once again, no dice. We finally succeded with a tupperware funnel and an extra person pouring the salt water steadily into it. I have got to say, I have never breathed easier in my life. Matt said his sense of smell was amazing. So we are hooked on homemade sinus cleansing.
