It's been a long time since I've done a Works For Me Wednesday post. It's not that I don't have anything to offer up. It's that I can't remember when it comes time to post it. So without further ado let me show you!

Thank you to my very brave husband, Superman. We don't call him a superhero for nothing. He also believes in this concept a lot!

Ye old Nette. Has anyone ever used a nette pot? I tried and hated it. It felt like I was diving into the deep end of the pool and depositing most of the water in my sinuses. It would hurt like the dickens ( what exactly is a dickens?). Superman informed that I had the wrong technique. So I tried again with no success.
So a year has gone by and I've been sneezing like crazy for a couple of months. Rarely do I ever sneeze. I decided to give the pot another go. Superman was right! My technique was all wrong.

Here is Superman's Technique:

  1. use sea salt

  2. warm water

  3. shower (easiest place w/no clean up)

  4. tip your head as far over as you can

  5. lean your head forward a bit
  6. use half a pot for each side

It works! But don't laugh or breathe in while you're doing it or you'll be tasting the sea in a whole new way.

I'm now sneeze free. When I do notice a more than the occasional sneeze I make sure that I nette!

a note to chickadees: We know we're crazy, but this is what makes life fun!
