I just came across this Apple Cider Vinegar rinse and thought I'd try. I've been irrigating with salt water, but have not added the ACV. Last night, I added ACV to my rinse. I use the NeilMed Sinus Rinse bottle. WHOA! The amount of green crud that left my face was incredible. And I could actually breathe again. Got clogged again overnight, so did it again in the morning. Same story. Tons of green junk left my nose. There is a definite improvement, and I will continue doing this.
Bonus... the chronic ear pain I've had for two years straight is greatly reduced since doing the ACV rinse. We will see what the future holds for this! So far I'm impressed.

My health insurance rates went up this year so I decided to try and find cures for ailments without running to the doctor, so I decided to try what I read on here, an ACV sinus wash/rinse. the first time I tried pouring 1/4 tsp into the netty pot with 8 oz sterile water and a salt packet from the drug store, I went a little too much on the ACV. I accidentally dropped quite a splash in there, didn't really know how much went in. Well, it BURNED and I was so desperate for relief I just toughed it out. Well, it cleaned me completely out. That night I slept great and within 2 days I was clear. I did it 2 nights in a row, just before bed.
Then I got sick again, but this time I poured some ACV into a cup, the scooped out 1/4 tsp into my sterile salted water and it was not painful at all, didn't clear it up as quickly as it did when I used more ACV, but as long as I do it in the morning and at night, it keeps me feeling better, until I clear up on my own.
I also use a cotton swab and dip it in the ACV and clean my ears, because usually I get an ear infection along with my sinus infection. I just dip the swab in the vinegar and make sure it is completely drenched because I really want the ACV to get in my ear and travel up some, maybe even put a drop or two in there if possible.
This is not really a miracle cure (though for me it seems like it), but it makes life easier so that you can function while giving your body time to heal itself without the need of antibiotics.

I wondered about adding Apple Cider Vinegar or white vinegar to the netty pot solution, and you have confirmed for me that it is a good answer to a sinus infection.
