Q.56 - How often can I use Neti Pot? And how often can my 10 year old son use it?
You can safely use the neti pot 1-4 times a day. Same for the 10 year old. For most users once or twice a day is enough.

Some related questions that may interest you:
What is the safe way of washing the neti pot? Should I wash it after use? Should I be using dish detergent? Or could I assume the nasal rinse powder is antiseptic enough to keep the pot clean too? Thanks.
Does the sinus rinse powder have an expiration date? I have had mine for at least 5 years. Is it ok to use?
Instructions & video unclear: does 1 8 oz neti pot serve only one nostril or both? It says to repeat steps 3 & 4, which would indicate 8 oz would do both nostrils.
Can you use the neti pot after a nose bleed?
when will sinusurf be available?
