Unstuff the Stuffies

This is a quick tip I discovered after a shower a few years ago. When you get a cold that really stuffs up your nose, take a hot shower. When you get out, immediately give your nose a good blow (not too hard…lol) and you will be surprised how much mucus comes out. If I have a bad cold, I may take three or more showers a day. LOL. Oh, and just standing in the bathroom while the shower is running does not work.

If you have little children a long hot bath can work too, However, a shower seems to be the most successful method for our family. The little ones can stand in there for a few minutes and let the warm water run down over them. Make it fun if you need to!

Doing this before bed really helps me have a better nights sleep as well.

Note: this does not cure the stuffy nose. It only offers me relief and maybe it will for you too. Oh, and ALWAYS supervise kids and water.

    I have a friend that says that if she places a small dollop of Noxema face cream under her nose, that helps her to unstuff. I agree with the steam, though. It’s the way to go. Oh, and to teach the kids not to eat, well, the contents of their nose (ewww!) I started telling my daughter that they are germ catchers. I told her that God gave her sticky stuff in her nose to catch germs and if she was eating that stuff, she was eating the germs too and making herself sick. Kids know germs are bad. She stopped after that!
