DON'T DO IT!!!!!!

I had some half-wit on a holistic website recommend that I use one to get rid of sinus congestion/infection.  All it did was manage to backwash the infection into my eustachian tube, therefore causing me a middle ear infection, which later caused my eardrum to rupture.

The ENT specialist I finally had to go to was pissed - he said the incidences of ear infections in adults has tripled in his office over the last 3 years since the neti pots really became popular

 So weird you are bringing this up. I have a friend on facebook who just got one. I was asking about it and some other people say they use it and love it. One girl said it really was not that bad except the one time she forgot to put the saline in it. She said she never made that mistake again!

Thinking of getting one myself.
