Nose Bidets

A "nose bidet" (also known as a neti pot) is a device used for nasal irrigation. I'm not really sure how it works, but I think it involves pouring water into one nostril so that it comes out the other. Wikipedia reports that in some parts of India, this practice is as common as brushing one's teeth.

But even better is the yogic nasal cleansing practice of Sutra Neti:

One end of a cord, or rubber catheter, is passed from the nose into the back of the throat where it is grabbed by the fingers and pulled out of the mouth. Holding the nose end of the cord with one hand and the mouth end with the other, the cord is gently pulled to and fro.

I already floss my teeth once a day. I don't think I need to floss my nose.

The Sutra Neti idea honestly makes me gag when I think about it.
