What about the Ear Pot / Ear Bidet?

My friend was telling me a story about how he had a clogged ear. Apparently it became water clogged and there was a ball of wax stuck in his ear. He knows that I use a neti pot.

He was relating how he managed to fix his ear by quirting some water in there with a bulb and he called it " ear bidet style." He knows that one of the slang terms for a neti pot is a nose bidet and I refer to mine by that name.

Yes, I use a Neti Pot

I am a real person and I use a neti pot, I don't just write blogs about it. I like to call it a nose bidet.

My routine pretty much follows my previous post about neti pot nasal irrigation. I use my nose bidet/neti pot every morning with the salt packets that came with it ( I use a Sinucleanse kit that came with 90 salt packets.

Before I brush my teeth in the morning, I gently blow my nose and irrigate my sinus area. I usually only do this once a day, but sometimes I use my nose pot at night before bed also.

Nasal Irrigation with a neti pot- Just like Brushing Your Teeth

I am sure the use of the neti pot is pretty new to a lot of us. I had never heard of it before the Oprah Winfrey show in early 2007. Even then the slang name "'nose bidet" was more memorable.

However, in many parts of the world nasal irrigation is pretty much a daily routine. We all brush our teeth at least daily- I hope. Jali neti ( nasal cleansing in sanskrit)is pretty much the same. It is a daily health and hygiene routine, like any other cleansing of the body. People in India and other places do this once a day in the morning. Some choose to perform the practice at the end of the day also, especially when congested or exposed to polluted environments.

Apparently Americans Don't know how to spell "nose bidet"

This is a blog about Neti Pots. If you didn't know, a net pot is also called a "nose bidet." When I started a little site about my nose bidet last year, it never occurred to me that "bidet" was a word many could not spell. I read this article the other day :Americans Want, Can't Spell Nose Bidet.

Apparently, many Americans spell it as nose beday, baday, biday, and even bedae. Sinucleanse learned this by bidding on these keywords in Adwords ( Google's Pay-Per-Click search). What I found interesting was that despite bidding on search results, no one bothered to actually register some of the available domains. Maybe the typo traffic wasn't worth the 5 bucks a year.

Saline Packets for Neti Pots

If you use a neti pot ( sometimes called a nose bidet), it is important to use quality refill salt ( saline) packets. Saline solution can also be bought by the jar. The saline is a central ingredient of the sinus cleansing process. The neti should not be used without it. You may purchase saline refill packets and solution and other neti pot supplies here:
