Nasal irrigation is done to flush mucus, foreign matter, pus, and bacteria out of the nasal cavity in order to alleviate a variety of symptoms, such as nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, postnasal drip, as well as reducing inflammation in the nasal cavity.

Nasal irrigation should be done with Normal Saline Solution such as Sofclens, which is an isotonic solution, and has been sterilized with high heat, so it is clean, safe to use, and non-irritating. 
Nasal irrigation can help loosen mucus and reduce the buildup of foreign matter and germs in the nasal cavity.

  • Helps loosen and remove the buildup of mucus and clean out nasal passageways.
  • Helps alleviate chronic cold symptoms, such as congestion, sneezing, runny nose, rhinitis, and postnasal drip.
  • Helps promote sinus drainage by reducing mucus and pus buildup in the sinuses and nasal cavity, allowing sinus infections to clear up more quickly.
  • Helps prevent the spread of bacteria from the nasal cavity and sinuses to the ear or lungs.
  • Helps reduce the buildup of dust, germs, allergens, and other irritants in the nasal cavity.
  • Helps add moisture to the mucus membrane in the nasal cavity.
  • Helps relieve congestion and inflammation of the mucous membrane and open up nasal passages, especially when using warm saline.
  • Helps reduce irritation and inflammation in the nasal cavity.
  • When done prior to administering any prescribed nasal sprays or drops, helps to maximize contact between the medication and the mucous membrane, thus improving absorption and effectiveness.
  • Helps soften and remove scabs in the mucous membrane after surgery or radiation, promoting the healing of sores in the nasal cavity and sinuses and preventing the formation of fibrosis, which can lead to the narrowing of nasal passageways and sinuses.
  • In some cases, helps to reduce the needed dosage of nasal or sinus medication.
  • When there is buildup of thick mucus in the nasal cavity.
  • When there is nasal congestion.
  • After inhalation of dust, pollution, or allergens.
  • Before using nasal spray or drops, as prescribed by a doctor.
  • When there is postnasal drip from inflammation in the nasal cavity or sinuses.
  • After nasal or sinus surgery or radiation, as prescribed by a doctor.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Position a receptacle, such as a small basin, to catch the saline that will drain out of the nose and mouth, or stand over a sink.
  • Remove the plunger of a syringe and fill with 10-15 ml of saline for adults and 5 ml for children. Replace the plunger.
  • Lean forward and tilt your head slightly above the receptacle.  Start with the side that is less congested. 
  • Insert the tip of the syringe into one nostril slightly, open your mouth, take a deep breath, and hold it.
  • Holding your breath, slowly inject the saline in a gentle stream.  After the saline drains out of the other nostril or the mouth completely, you can resume normal breathing.  The most important thing is to hold your breath while the saline passes through the nasal cavity to prevent the saline from being inhaled into the larynx and trachea, which can cause choking. 

    After becoming familiar with the process, you can increase the amount of saline used each time.  The technique for the most effective cleansing is to change the positioning of the syringe tip each time in order to reach all areas of the nasal cavity and thoroughly flush out mucus and foreign matter from both sides. 

    After irrigating one nostril, the saline should flow out of the other if the process is done correctly.  You should also alternate nostrils.  For example, after rinsing the left nostril, move on to the right, then back to the left, ​​and so on.
  • Rinsing should be done until the nostrils feel free of mucus and foreign matter and the runoff saline is completely clear.
  • Gently clear any residual mucus and saline out of the nose and throat.
  • Nasal irrigation is recommended before meals (on an empty stomach) or at least 2 hours after eating in order to avoid vomiting or choking.
  • Equipment used in nasal irrigation should be washed in soap or mild detergent and water and air dried before storage in a clean, sealed container.

    *** In the case that nasal irrigation with warm saline is prescribed by a doctor, use the following methods for heating saline:
  • To heat saline to a temperature appropriate for the nasal mucous membrane, boil tap water in a pot large enough to place the saline bottle.  Remove the pot from heat and place the saline bottle into the pot for 5 minutes before use (Sofclens' bottle is heat-resistant).
    Please test the temperature of the saline before injecting into the nose to ensure that it is not too hot.

1. Nasal irrigation for children requires less saline. Use 5 ml for children instead of 10-15 ml for adults.
2. For children, when injecting saline into the nostril, make sure they say “ah” continuously.  Otherwise, they may aspirate and choke on the saline.  After rinsing, instruct children to lightly blow residual saline out of their noses.  If they are unable to do so on their own, use a cleaned bulb syringe to suction mucus out of the nostrils.

  • Those with runny nose or nasal congestion
  • Those exposed to pollution
  • Those who suffer from chronic allergies
  • Those who suffer from rhinitis
  • Those using nasal sprays, as prescribed by a doctor
  • Those undergoing treatment for other nose and sinus disorders, as prescribed by a doctor
  • For adults, use a 20 ml syringe to hold 10-15 ml of saline per application.
  • For children, use a 10 ml syringe to hold 5 ml of saline per application.
  • Normal Saline Solution can be used to safely cleanse wounds, reducing the growth of bacteria.
  • Normal Saline Solution  is an isotonic solution, so it does not cause irritation or stinging on open wounds.
