Neilmed rinse:
distilled water:

For your safety, do not use tap water, faucet water, or non-chlorinated or non-ultra (.2 micron) filtered well water for dissolving the mixture UNLESS it has been previously boiled for five minutes or more as boiling sterilizes the water. Before using the product, make sure the boiled water has been cooled down. You can store boiled water in a clean container for up to seven days in the refrigerator. Other choices are distilled, micro-filtered (through 0.2 micron), commercially bottled or, as mentioned earlier, previously boiled water cooled to lukewarm or body temperature
Each device must be used only by one user; do not share this product with others
Replace device within three months of your first use
Rinse nose gently
Always rinse your nasal passages with NeilMed® Sinus Rinse™ packets only. Our packets contain a mixture of USP grade sodium chloride and sodium bicarbonate. These ingredients are of the purest quality available to make the dry powder mixture. Rinsing your nasal passages with only plain water without our mixture will result in a severe burning sensation as the plain water is not physiologic for your nasal lining, even if it is appropriate for drinking.
Do not rinse if your nasal passages are completely blocked or if you have an ear infection or blocked ears.
If you have had recent ear or sinus surgery, contact your physician prior to irrigation.
If you experience any pressure in the ears or burning in the nasal passages, stop irrigation and get further directions from your physician.
Read and retain this enclosed brochure for instructions and other important information.
Before using the Sinus Rinse™ Kit for the first time, please inspect the cap, tube and bottle carefully for wear and tear. If any of the components appear discolored or cracked, please contact NeilMed® to obtain a complimentary replacement.
The Sinus Rinse™ bottle and mixture are to be used only for nasal irrigation. Do not use for any other purposes
We recommend that you use the rinse ONE HOUR PRIOR to bedtime in order to avoid any residual solution dripping down the throat
We strongly advise against the use of our kit on children or adults who have physical limitations or mental disabilities due to developmental or acquired disorders. All users must be able to fully understand the instructions for use before rinsing. Patients who are unable to stand up or bend near the sink SHOULD NOT use this product. We especially advise you NOT to use this kit on patients who are bed bound or severely debilitated
Do not swallow the solution; however, if you do so accidentally, there is no harm as the amount of sodium ingested in one swallow is insignificant
If you have had ear surgery, please contact your physician prior to irrigation
Do not use if you have an ear infection or blocked ears
Rinse with lukewarm distilled, filtered or previously boiled water
Keep your mouth open
Do not hold your breath while rinsing
While rinsing, make sure to tilt your head as shown in the photo below.
Gently squeeze the bottle while rinsing; do not squeeze the bottle very forcefully.
Stop the rinse if you feel a sensation of fluid near your ears.
Most importantly, always blow your nose very gently.
To Avoid Unexpected Drainage After Rinsing:
In rare situations, especially if you have had sinus surgery, the saline solution can pool in the sinus cavities and nasal passages and then drip from your nostrils hours after rinsing. To avoid this harmless but annoying inconvenience, take one extra step after rinsing: lean forward, tilt your head sideways and gently blow your nose. Then, tilt your head to the other side and blow again. You may need to repeat this several times. This will help rid your nasal passages of any excess mucus and remaining saline solution. If you find yourself experiencing delayed drainage often, do not rinse right before leaving your house or going to bed
