Neti Pot Users Swear This Funny Contraption Cures Everything from Migraines to Sinus Pain. But Does It Really Work? We Review It.

Sinu Cleanse® Squeeze TM
Manufacturer: Sinu Cleanse MSRP: $14.99 (Neti Pot); $10.99 (Sinu Cleanse Squeeze) Place of Purchase: CVS, Amazon.com
Neti Pot & SinuCleanse Squeeze Pros:
Provides natural sinus relief from congestion, pressure and pain
Reduced post-cold sinus pain, pressure, and headaches
Reduced runny nose and itching from household allergies
Improved taste and smell
Developed by an M.D. and ear, nose and throat specialist
Accomplished what over-the-counter decongestants provide, without resorting to any medication
Neti Pot & SinuCleanse Cons:
Takes a little practice to get used to squirting water up your nose
“Grossness” factor: This thing works, but again, you are squirting water up your nose and letting it drain out the other side. Probably not something you want to perform in front of that new girlfriend or boyfriend. Or your spouse. Or your family.
Neti Pot seems less effective at clearing badly congested nose during a cold. However, the SinuCleanse Squeeze does the trick.
