I have run out of the polyrinse saline solution for the nebulizer, can i use saline solution from the baby's saline nasal spray for babys nebulizer?

If sterile: I find that the big bottles of nasal saline sold in the US are an adequate substitute for the saline pods when/if a new bottle or only used for the nebulizer. Don't use one if it was ever used in the nose. Here we can get them at a dollar store.
