It is estimated that around 38 million Americans are battling chronic sinus infections. Runny noses, headaches, sinus pressure, and watery eyes are part of symptoms that people are struggling with.

Antibiotics are the most prescribed drugs when it comes to treating sinus infections. But in most cases these medications are associated with several side effects. They can remove good bacteria from a person’s nasal cavity, cause nausea and diarrhea. That is why research has gone on to develop this new and natural remedy.

You need to start by creating a clear and clean airway when treating sinus infections. Excess mucous, reduced air flow and inflammation is associated with sinus infections. Irrigation is necessary to clear the debris, excess oil, and bacteria.

It has been found out that the use of baby shampoo can help during the irrigation routine when you want to get rid of the excess oil.


Ingredients for nasal irrigation:

  • Basin
  • Kleenex
  • Bulb syringe
  • Plastic bag
  • Salt (3 tsp)
  • Baking soda (1 tsp)
  • Baby shampoo (1/2 tsp)
  • Lukewarm distilled water (1 cup)



  1. Mix baking soda and salt to create a saline solution. You can use a ziplic bag to store it if you need to use it in the future.
  2. Take the saline solution (1 tsp) and mix it with baby shampoo (1/2 tsp), and lukewarm distilled water (1 cup).
  3. Then draw the solution using the bulb syringe. While tilting your head downwards, and placing it over the sink or basin, place the syringe halfway into your nostril and squeeze it halfway. It is normal for the solution to come out from the other nose.
  4. You can remove excess fluid by gently blowing your nose.

Don’t panic if you feel part of the solution in our ears, it will disappear after a while. If it happens you are using nasal medications, wait for 30 minutes before you can use the irrigation remedy.
