When mucus can't get out of the sinuses, bacteria start to grow, and that causes a sinus infection." —Toribio Flores, MD, Cleveland Clinic
Daily nasal irrigation resulted in improvement in the symptoms of chronic sinusitis in over 70% of subjects. Medication usage was decreased in approximately one third of participants." —Heatley DG, McConnell KE, Kille TL, Leverson GE. Otolaryngology Head Neck Surgery
Snoot! Cleanser is a non-systemic, drug-free nasal rinse that you spray up your nose to help rinse away mucus, relieving discomfort and irritation from congestion found in conditions such as chronic sinusitis, common cold, allergies and the flu. Snoot! Cleanser does one thing very well -- it helps you get mucus out of your nose and sinuses. It does this better than just about anything else. In the process, it also helps you wash away bad stuff like bacteria, viruses, dust, pollen and other foreign particles. People find tremendous relief from just getting their nose and sinuses clear, and that's why they love Snoot!
Snoot! Cleanser comes as a two-part kit (see image) that you mix in batches only when you need it. You mix the two parts and pour them into the nasal spray bottle (included) and then spray it up your nose to wash away mucus and other things that may be up there. Once you mix a batch of Snoot! (there are about five batches per box) and put it in the spray bottle, it lasts about 5-7 days before it loses strength.
Snoot’s naturally drug-free formula is mostly purified water with very small amounts of glycerin, lactic acid, sodium carbonate, citric acid, and even smaller amounts of sodium chlorite, sodium chloride, wetting agents, cinnamal, sodium hydroxide, and glutaral. We use the minimum necessary amount of FDA-approved safe FD&C colors to provide for visibility safety -- so people can see which part is A or B. When the two parts are mixed, they generate a very small amount of acidified sodium chlorite, one of the safest antimicrobials known to science. For more information on why we use these ingredients and how they help you with "Sinus Success", please take a look at our How It Works page.

Mixing Snoot! is a snap! You fill each measuring cup with 10ml of solution and then pour them onto the sprayer. A quick shake of the sprayer and you're ready to go! Using Snoot! is even more simple: you just spray a few squirts up each nostril (most people breath in gently when they do this) and then blow out the mucus and other stuff. Here are the simple, easy-to-follow Product Directions that come with every package of Snoot! Cleanser.
Yes, Snoot! can be used safely by children under 12 but we recommend that this be done under adult supervision, especially the mixing of Snoot! Cleanser. Consult your physician regarding using Snoot! with infants or children under 6 years of age. Follow this link for our Illustrated Product Directions.
Yes! In fact, Snoot! is a high-tech replacement for the Neti Pot. You can read more about this on our How It Works page. We actually have a Neti-pot formula in development, but we are having trouble testing it because most of our testers seem to decide they prefer using Snoot! in the spray bottle after all!
We have customers that like doing this. If you want to try it, you can mix some Snoot! solution into your Neti Pot water, but we suggest that you follow these directions for optimal success:
Once you mix a batch of Snoot! (there are about five batches per box) and put it in the spray bottle, it lasts about 5-7 days before it loses strength. Each box of Snoot! will last a month with frequent use. Our survey tells us that about half the people who love Snoot! use it once or more per day.
The unmixed solution (part A and B) lasts at least one year from the time you purchase it if kept at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
Yes, you can, but we only guarantee Snoot! through the "freshness date" shown on the box and your bottles, which is generally twelve (12) months from the time of packaging. The unmixed bottles (A & B) lose their strength with exposure to sunlight, heat and time. Carefully stored, Snoot! will last up to a year from the packaging date without much degradation. When it gets old it just doesn't work very well but will not harm you in any way.
Most people like the way Snoot! Cleanser feels as it helps you rinse away mucus. But some people with very sensitive nasal and sinus tissue feel a stinging sensation similar to when plain water gets in their nose. And they're partly right: Snoot! is mostly water and has low salt (saline) levels...it is hypotonic, which means it has a lower salt level than your body does. That low salinity can also help you clear stuff out of your nose, especially with Snoot! Cleanser's other ingredients.
Snoot! is the opposite of the strong "ocean" style hypertonic (saltier than your body) saline rinses. Studies have shown that these hypertonic saline rinses can damage your nose and sinuses! If you're using Snoot! when you have a bad infection you may feel some irritation the first time you spray it, especially when you have inflamed or irritated tissues. This usually lessens with repeated use. You can add some isotonic saline to Snoot! Cleanser to make it milder -- just pour some snoot out of the sprayer and squirt in some saline. We do not recommend using hypotonic saline for this.
In most cases, any unpleasant sensation lessens or goes away with repeated use. If you find that Snoot! Cleanser increases the irritation in your nose or sinuses, or if you are otherwise unhappy with your experience of Snoot!, please stop using it immediately and instead use our 100% no-hassle, money-back guarantee. That's why we have it. We want you and your nose to be happy.

On April 2, 2013 we reformulated Snoot! Nasal Cleanser to be slightly milder. If you purchased Snoot! prior to that date, you probably have purchased what we now call the "Original Formula", which is the pretty much the same formula that we used when Snoot! was named"Sinox". You can still buy the Original formula, but only in a few different sizes, as the new formula is intended for new customers. Follow this link to buy the Snoot! "Original" Formula Products
