Monday, March 13, 2006 Health: Homemade Saline Spray for Stuffy Noses

Awww...have you got a cold? Here's an easy way to make your own saline spray - which is basically just a salt water solution - to help ease that stuffiness away.

Salt-water rinsing helps break nasal congestion, while also removing virus particles and bacteria from your nose. Here's a popular recipe: Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in 8 ounces of warm water. Use a bulb syringe to squirt water into the nose. Hold one nostril closed by applying light finger pressure while squirting the salt mixture into the other nostril. Let it drain. Repeat 2-3 times, then treat the other nostril.
