What the Afrin PureSea Medium Stream Hydrating Nasal Rinse is a nasal rinse made of 100% purified seas water. That is meant to completely clear out and rinse your nasal passages. Honestly the Afrin PureSea Medium Stream Hydrating Nasal Rinse had the same idea just like a Neti Pot but in a bottle to me. It uses the same ingredients, just purified water with sea salt in it. You basically use it the same as you would a Neti Pot but you don't need to use as much. The way you use the Afrin nasal rinse is by inserting the tip upside down into your nose, and spray it up there a couple times. I would do it over a sink because it can be quite messy. I found that it does rinse out your nasal passages but not as good as a Neti. It gave me nasal drip all down my throat, and I had to blow my nose to get the mucus to come out. It also comes in a 4 oz bottle which is tiny for what you are spending on this. I feel like you would have to use the whole bottle to get sufficient results. A neti you can use as many times as you like, and daily but this would be too expensive and doesn't even come with enough product to use it for that long I would rather use a neti pot, or another nasal rinse, because this basically was just a small bottle of salt and water. You could have made something like this yourself Congestion Relief The Afrin completely cleared out and soothed my sinuses, and the saline solution got rid of/rinsed it all the stuck excess mucus. Chest Congestion Relief The rinse did clear out my nasal congestion, and made it easier to cough up again chest congestion as well. I would say that it made my chest feel not as tight, because there wasn't as much mucus stuck inside of it. Relief of Aches & Pains It only relieves pain due to sinus pressure and headaches. It is not meant to help with body aches and pains. Cough Suppression It doesn't necessarily help with cough suppression, but I found that it cleared up my sinuses, so I wasn't having mucus dripping down into my throat and irritating it further. I wasn't having to try and cough it up, so I wasn't coughing much at all.
