My sister swears that snorting salt water through her nose clears her especially stuffy sinuses.

I just got over a nasty sinus infection.

Inhaling steam always helps. Either lean over a kettle or pot of steaming water and drape a towel over your head and inhale, or stand in a room with a very hot shower running. Breathe.

i am definitely goin to try this tonight. some coworkers also suggested that i hang a hot wet towel while i sleep, maybe that'll help too?

Won't it end up being cold and wet and on your face? Yikes.
