The Best Sinus Rinse Kit With a Neti Pot

Himalayan Institute neti pot.

4.5 stars, 663 reviews
“I needed to upgrade my neti pot from plastic to glass and picked out this kit. It’s easy to use, and was no problem cleaning. It comes with everything needed to clean your nasal passages. It’s also packaged really well and is overall a nice kit at a reasonable price.”

The Best NeilMed Sinus Rinse Kit

NeilMed sinus rinse kit.

4.6 stars, 639 reviews
“I’ve always liked the NeilMed Sinus Rinse. The bottle makes the application very easy, and the premixed packages make it pretty much foolproof. I find that I always feel better for using this product; it just makes me feel super clean. I think that this package represents a great value—you get the bottle and a large number of sachets. This bottle application is really simple in comparison to neti pots; you just squirt it up your nose. For someone who has never used such a device before, it’s not very overwhelming.”

The Best Electric Neti Pot

Navage nasal irrigation starter bundle.

4.2 stars, 1,006 reviews
“I suddenly started suffering from allergies, with an annoying nasal drip, a clogged ear, and a cough that made me sound like a heavy smoker. I saw a TV ad for this, having tried a neti pot with limited success, and was getting desperate. The first time I tried it, it felt like someone had shoved a garden hose up one nostril, a shop vac up the other, and turned them both on. I had water pumped where water has probably never gone before. It was like my brain was going through a car wash. Drowning with my mouth open (you can literally feel the water heading down your throat to your lungs only to be sucked back out again). When it was done and I shook out the water in my ears (felt like I had just landed from a rapid flight descent), I noticed I wasn’t coughing. It cleaned me out. After a few more times, I got used to it and it’s no longer like being baptized by a drunk priest . If definitely works.”

The Best Ceramic Neti Pot

Aromatic Sale ceramic neti pot.

4.7 stars, 499 reviews
“I had used the plastic ones you get from drugstores for a long time and always had the same problem. The plastic ones have hollow handles where water accumulates and never dries. This leads to mold formation. So you end up pouring mold in your nose. The ceramic pot avoids the problem since there is no hollow handle. Moreover, the slick, glazed surfaces of the ceramic pot make it easier to clean and easier to shake off the water droplets. All in all, using a ceramic pot is much more hygienic. In addition, the ceramic pot is much more attractive than the plastic ones, and the tip that you put in your nose is also smoother and rounder on the ceramic one, so it’s more comfortable to use, which is important if you use it a lot.”

The Best Plastic Neti Pot

SinuCleanse nasal wash system.

4.3 stars, 662 reviews
“This is the third model of neti pot that I’ve gone through. So far it’s my favorite because it’s clear, so you can see if there are any impurities in the water or pot. It’s also plastic, so there’s no dropping and breaking (I totally shattered my ceramic neti pot). It’s constructed in a free-flowing curve shape, so all the water can flow out when the pot is placed with the spout opening facing down. That means no trapped water, mold, or bacteria growth. (My last two neti pots had a horrible mold issue, and it was very hard to get in all the little parts to clean). It also comes with a ton of salt packets … perfect for travel.”

The Best Ergonomic Neti Pot

ComfyPot neti pot.

4.6 stars, 250 reviews
“This neti pot is very comfortable and easy to use. It’s ergonomically designed to be easily handled, and the silicone nose cone is genius. It’s designed to reduce dripping, and is all-around a great product!”

The Best Gentle-Solution Sinus Rinse

Nasopure neti pot system.

4.2 stars, 632 reviews
“Fantastic product. It seems to be the perfect angle to get the lower part of my sinuses. I had bronchitis for a month and a half. Part of the problem was the post-nasal drip draining down the back of my throat little by little, which ended up repeatedly getting stuck in my chest. After antibiotics didn’t help, I tried this. Although it could have just been a coincidence, within a couple days of using it my cough dissipated, and within a week I was better. The solution was very gentle—there was no burning sensation—and the packaging said it can be used on very young kids.”
