    Ears clogged after using Nettipot

    Thank You for sharing your experience. I used the Nettipot (Generic Walgreen's version) and my ears are very clogged/muffled. The instrucations are confusing. They say to keep your head above your chin, so I think kept my head too vertical as opposed to horizontal, and this liquid is in my eustacian tube. Every time I blow my nose I can smell that distinctive smell of the saline and sodium bicarbonate mixute. I wish I had never learned what a Nettipot is.

    Some people like them, but I don't use or recommend them.
