Saline!

Less than exciting, today. I have two sick kids again today. In honor of them, today’s project is actually a recipe for saline nose drops.

1 cup warm water
1/2 tsp salt (non-iodized- I use sea salt)

Measure salt and pour into warm water, stir until dissolved. I was told not to use iodized salt because the iodine is harder on the sensitive tissue in the nose. Store in an airtight container.

And, of course, you’ll need a dropper of some sort. Put a few drops into one nostril, wait a few seconds for it to dissolve the *ahem* contents, and suck out with a nose bulb.

My kids only get sick occasionally, and I find this is easier (and cheaper) than having to find the bottle, check to see if it’s expired, and then run to the store to get some if it has or if I can’t find it.
