  • Do you have a nose sucker? I don't recall what the official name of it is. That is what we call it. That is what we use to get boogers out.

  • You can use a bulb syringe to suck it out then just squeeze it out onto a tissue.

  • I didn't care for the sucker 'cuz I never felt it was truly clean again, lol! I smidge OCD I am. If a q-tip isn't working I've used a diaper wipe. You need to only REALLY worry about the ones you can see.... others will fall or sneeze out naturally

  • aline drops are awesome for loosening them up. They make my daughter sneeze so they come out naturally. The booger suckers work best if you plug the opposite nostril.

  • Qtips can be dangerous; don't use them.

    Use the "boogie sucker" or steam in the bathroom
