I think my favorite recommendation is the Neti Pot. For those who haven't experienced it yet, its magical and yet really weird to use the first few times. Let's just say it was during a PEC planning session last winter that Laura first introduced me to a Neti Pot. And let's also say that its a good friend that stands by your side and watches all the goopy water run out of your nose, telling you "breathe out of your mouth, not your nose!" the whole time. Neti Pot + breathing through your nose = lots of salty water down your throat. Yuck!
