I have a sinus thing going on right now. I can feel the fluid and pressure in my ears, but they're not infected. Is there a home rememdy for reducing this fluid? I'm hoping to avoid an ear infection if possible!!

This is a tried and true method given to me by a nurse friend. Take a Q-tip and dip it into some regular rubbing alcohol and swab your ear canal with it without going in too deep. As the alcohol naturally evaporates, it takes the fluid out, too! You can probably do this 2-3 times a day max if you have a lot of fluid but I recommend playing it "by ear" and giving it some time after each swab to see if it improves. This has always worked for me.
If you think this answer is good, don't forget to "best answer."
