In brief: Similar

Saline (salt water) can be administered into the nose many ways.
Saline nasal sprays produce a fine mist, while drops are larger. Sometimes, nasal rinse with a neti pot or nasal sinus rinse in larger volumes to rinse out the nasal cavity is useful. An allergist or ENT can assist in the type of nasal spray/treatment most effective for each individual.
