This is what I bought today. After seeing the Neti Pot demonstration on Oprah a while ago, I knew I wanted to try this. A Neti Pot is supposed to clear your sinuses and relieve allergy symptoms (among other things, but this is why I bought it).
I was able to get it at our local health food store, which was nice. I hate paying for shipping on something if I don't have to! You can buy it online though too.
Basically you put some salt and warm water in the pot, stir it up, and then gently pour the water through one nostril, and it comes out the other! Switch sides, and then blow your nose a few times.
My head hasn't felt this 'clean' in a looong time! It's kind of odd, actually. I'm going to try using this everyday for a while, and see if it clears up my allergies a bit. I'm tired of going through a box of tissues every week.
Here's a demo video for the Neti Pot. It shows you how to use it correctly. Enjoy!
