I do the same , unclogging nose can be very messy but it feels good. Breathing in moist air can help soothe irritated tissue and sinuses. A humidifier can increase the humidity in your room easily. It converts water to moisture that slowly fills the air. Humidifiers also thin the mucus in your sinuses, and helps you to breath normally. Take a shower and stay hydrated too.Leaning over a sink, you want to slowly and gently pour or squirt the solution into one nostril. It will feel weird at first - it goes up through your nasal passageway and comes out the other nostril, taking all the "junk" with it! I do this whenever I am having trouble getting to sleep because of my allergies rather than popping a pill.
