Brain eating amoebas? --P3A58NT86 20:45, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

The article says to boil the water. Amoebas can't stand up to boiling temperatures. Only a few bacteria can, as far as unicellular creatures go. Ikanreed (talk) 20:48, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Oh Ok. Somehow I missed that after looking it over twice. --P3A58NT86 21:12, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

All told, the Neti Pot is slightly useful, but only slightly. I have one, but I only use it for making head-colds slightly less miserable. Captain Wolff 04:27, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

My mother had a medical procedure done involving her sinuses, and they had her use a saline squeeze bottle sinus rinse as part of the aftercare instructions. Which is basically the same as using a neti pot. It did a good job of flushing out the clotted blood and whatnot. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

"Your brain is not a combustion engine, and does not need to be water-cooled."[edit]

Neither is my computer's CPU a combustion engine, but it still needs to be water-cooled, and I can't be the only one here who wants an overclocked brain. Promethean (talk) 01:24, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Cranberry juice?[edit]

Citation needed! Please let there not be a citation for this. That is not where you put cranberry juice. (talk) 16:20, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

here, for example "YouTube is loaded with videos of would-be Johnny Knoxvilles filling their Neti pots with coffee, whiskey and Tabasco. "That's just craziness," says Senior, who has heard of his own patients testing everything from cranberry juice to…we wish we were kidding…urine." ... I think this may be the source when I wrote this; I'll update the article later Carpetsmoker (talk) 13:19, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps someone used urine in their neti pot when they had a UTI, and figured cranberry juice would help. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
