(And remember, pat dry afterward don’t wipe.)If you’re super stuffed up during the day, you can add a third nasal wash around midday, Schachter says.Although instructions are different for nasal wash squeeze bottles and Neti pots, you can try this general recipe and how to:Mix 3 heaping tablespoons of iodide free salt and a rounded teaspoon of baking soda together in a clean baggie or plastic container.Then dissolve 1 teaspoon of this mixture into a cup of lukewarm distilled water. (You can sterilize your own water boil it, then let it cool.)Fill a Neti pot or bulb syringe with the solution.Tilt your head down and to the left over a sink while you empty about half the salt water into your right nostril, letting the water come out the other nostril. Switch sides.
MILLERSVILLE, TN (WSMV) Three emergency responders who were hit by a semi truck Saturday night are on the mend. But those familiar with the area where it happened say something needs to be done before the next time.The men are each in stable condition Monday after they were hit while responding to a crash on Interstate 65 South in Millersville.”It was a routine response that turned out not so routine,” Millersville Fire Chief Kirt Brinkley said.It an area of I 65 that emergency personnel know all too well.”Every time an accident goes in that area we all kind of cringe,” Millersville Police Chief Ronnie Williams said.The grade of the hill, rock walls, a sharp curve and no lights make mile marker 103 a spot where dozens of accidents happen, particularly at night.Qualls said the Millersville police and fire departments were working an the initial crash when the tractor trailer came upon the scene and struck firefighters Jeremy Lackey and Jacob Coleman, along with Sumner County paramedic Todd Crumpler.”When my guys hollered firefighters down that just changed their response to taking care of our own because we used to taking care of other people now we had to take care of our own,” Brinkley said.Brinkley says the support from the community for the injured men has been amazing.”This is the first incident where I had anybody hurt on one of our scenes, and it has really taken a toll on me. And it just taken a toll on the entire department,” he said.Williams says he is already talking to TDOT about what can be done to warn drivers about the dangerous stretch of road after he previously had an officer injured while responding to a wreck in the same place.The Tennessee Highway Patrol is still investigating Saturday wreck.
