Get a Neti Pot

Nasal irrigation is an ancient Indian method of flushing out excess mucus and some of the virus that causes the cold or flu. A neti pot looks like a small, Aladdin-style genie lamp. To use it, tip your head sideways and pour warm, sterilized water salt water into one nostril, to flush the nasal cavity as it comes out the other nostril. "Regular use keeps the upper respiratory tract clear," says Nakayama. "All the congested mucus that collects in the nasal passages can be flushed right away."
