A hot shower is just the thing to help with congestion from a cold or sinus infection, but if you're really stuffed up, use your neti pot in the shower. Breathe in the steam for five minutes, and then fill your neti pot with salt and use the water from your showerhead — it's the perfect temperature. Not only will the steam make your neti session more effective, but you won't waste tissues when you blow your nose. Use a plastic neti pot like this Rhino Horn, so you won't risk breaking it if it slips out of your hand. If you're not sure how to use a neti pot, check out this video.
