This is a neat trick that’s really easy to do. If you have a cold or a blocked nose, mix three teaspoons of salt, one teaspoon of baking soda and eight ounces of warm water. Make sure that the salt is free of iodide, and that you have distilled or boiled the water before using it. Fill an old nasal spray bottle with the liquid and use it whenever you feel like your nasal passages are congested. You’ll find that this simple combination of salt, baking powder and water helps open up your airways and keep you feeling free of congestion all day long.
