Ways to cure congestion and runny nose in a day at home!
- Rinsing is effective when the first symptoms occur. The benefit of this flushing is that it helps you to remove excess secretions containing pathogenic microflora.
You should prepare saline solution for this procedure. Add 1 teaspoon of sea (or kitchen) salt on 500ml of water. Tpour the salt in a hot water, stir and wait the water to cool to 34-36 ° C.
Blow your nose and start the procedure: stand over the sink, leaning forward, tilt your head to the side and start to pour a saline solution into one nostril.
After this, you change the side and so on as you do not use the whole solution. Salt water can be poured with a container, a bottle or a large syringe without a needle.
