Being sick is the worst. And right now, it seems like everyone is coming down with something. The cold season is making its first rounds, and I was unfortunately part of the sweep.

Luckily, I have a boss who cares about my health! Especially when there's entertainment involved. Govia learned that I had never used a Neti pot before, so he ran out and picked one up to help speed my recovery (we share a mic after all).

Our listeners were split; Stacy said she hates neti pots, Lauren swore by them. So, after giving it the B100 touch, I set out to try this myself. Here's how that went:

Overall, I'd probably give it a 6.5/10 rating. It felt so weird. If you're a first timer trying to figure out if this is for you, here's what I learned:

  1. You WILL feel it in the back of your throat. It's not so much that you'll choke on it, but you'll feel its presence
  2. It's gross. Liquid is flowing in one nostril and out the other. There's not much glamor there.
  3. HAVE SUPERVISION! At least for your first time, keep someone nearby. You'll inevitably freak at least a little on how it feels, they'll be able to keep you calm.
