I've been rinsing for a few years, on & off. I've tried a neti pot a well as a squirt bottle. I've used pre-made packets to mix up the solution & I've made my own. So I feel fairly well qualified to review Ocean Saline Nasal Spray & Ocean Complete Sinus Rinse. The Sinus rinse is a 177mL canister of saline that you spray into your nose. It comes with two different nozzles, one that creates a mist & the other that squirts a stream, with an additional cap on the end to seal it to your nostril.
Sinus Rinse canister, I found the pressure was more than I was used to with my squeeze bottle. This would be great if you had a stuffed up nose & really wanted to clear it out. It's very convenient to just open a container & use it, no mixing or water required. However, the major downside is that the water in the canister is cold. When I rinse normally, I use water at about body temperature, which is much more comfortable. When I tried the other nozzle to get a mist, I found it more of a squirt than a mist.
I had a lot more luck with the small plastic squeeze bottles of Saline Nasal Spray. There's less pressure & the mist is actually quite fine. I even tried it out on Sprout & he thought it was hilarious, asking immediately to do it twice in each nostril. I'll definitely use this on him next time he has a cold, to help clear out his nose.
Ocean Saline Nasal Spray retails for about $5 & the Complete Sinus Rinse goes for about
