A Saline Neti Pot

While doing that, you have to continue breathing from the mouth. Once you have emptied the neti pot, refill it and repeat the technique on the other side. It is recommended to fill half of the neti pot in the beginning (first two weeks).
This is called stage one. Stage two involves a much deeper cleaning of the nasal, from infections or large obstructions are present in the nasal cavity.

It involves taking the water in the mouth and directing it out the nose.
