So, I don't swim. I'm terrified of water. I hate having water on my face, let alone *up my nose*. So when I heard about this product, I was skeptical, and terrified, but I knew it was what I needed. So I did it. I mixed the packet with warm water and put the pot in one nostril and it came out the other side!
I have been using this for 8 years. My tips: make sure you are not congested and use the warmest water that your nasal cavities can handle. There are times when I know I need to blow my nose, but nothing is coming out, and this is the only way to get stuff moving.
I will say however that it does take a few tries to get the hang of. But once you have it, you'll be singing the praise of this product as well.
This particular Neti Pot is unique because it doesn't require any unusual body positions and it comes with packets of medicine for sinus rinsing.
Now, you must realise you cannot use water straight from the tap!!! You could potentially get a harmful growth of bacteria near your BRAIN! You want to use distilled water, boiled (and then cooled) tap water, saline or boiled (and then cooled) filtered water.
You really don't want to die so please use "safe" water. Your tap water has microbes in it....
I use my Neti Pot while standing in the shower because it's just easier for me rather than standing at the sink. If I'm already in the shower there's no extra mess to clean up from water. Also, I feel it's more sanitary.
From the pamphlet in the box...

P.S more than 2 people have died from unsterile tap water. Don't let this years deaths of only two people fool you. Just like eating bacon raw, would you risk parasites??? Or food poisoning? I don't think so.
