In brief: OTC prep

We often recommend first the neil-med sinus wash or neti-pot system. But remember, you must always use distilled water, saline, or boiled water for the solutions, never tap water, as that can potentially cause bacteria in the sinuses to migrate to the brain and result in a sometimes fatal brain infection.
