The Navage Nose Cleaner, found online Navage.com, is described as being the combination of modern technology and the ancient therapy of saline nasal irrigation in order to treat chronic nasal conditions.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the US Centers for Disease Control says that about 40 million people in North America suffer from chronic sinus infections, a condition that can truly make people miserable during winter and cold and flu season.
The creator of the Navage Nose Cleaner suffered from recurring sinusitis and discovered that using a neti pot for nasal irrigation genuinely helped him avoid further recurrences or the significant discomfort that can occur with a sinus infection.
But one day he realized that perhaps the process of nasal irrigation would be more comfortable, convenient, and neater if the saline liquid used in the process was pulled through your sinus cavity instead of pushed through, the way it is with a traditional neti pot.
In order to achieve this, he designed the Navage Nasal Hygiene System, which uses specially designed saline pods clipped into place on the Nose Cleaner and two nostril plugs.
One plug delivers the saline liquid into your nostril, while the other uses a vacuum to gently pull the liquid through the sinus cavity.
Their website says this is the world’s first handheld nasal irrigator that uses suction for irrigation, and that their patented system eliminates the users’ need for measuring and cleaning up.
Cost & Price Plans
The Navage Nose Cleaner Starter Kit currently costs $59.95 and includes the Nose Cleaner unit, the AA batteries necessary to run it, the Owner’s Manual, and 30 Navage SaltPod Capsules, which are worth $19.95.
Unfortunately, the machine must have its specifically designed SaltPod Capsules in order to run correctly, so customers will need to take that future cost into consideration as well.
There is a standard 30 Day Money Back Refund Policy in place for this product. Customers must contact their Customer Service team at [email protected], and they will be provided with an RMA number and return shipping instructions.
Once your product has been received, they will provide you with your refund.
This policy is just in place for the actual Navage Nose Cleaner; open trays of Naväge SaltPods, replacement parts, and accessories may not be returned.

There are not many customer reviews available online for this product at this time, but those that are available make some interesting observations.
First, not everyone agrees that sensation of liquid being pulled through the nasal passages is much more comfortable – or any more comfortable – than pushing the liquid through the nasal passages.
And though the SaltPods definitely eliminate the need to measure and mix the saline solution yourself, there is still some “cleanup” involved with the nasal irrigation process even when using the Navage Nose Cleaner, as the sinuses continue to drain the solution well after the machine is done pulling the liquid through your sinuses.
But for people who genuinely suffer from chronic sinusitis, this mechanized product may be easier to use on a regular basis than a traditional neti pot, depending on your personal needs.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned in the Navage website, this is the only product that uses a vacuum to pull liquid through your nasal passages, but there are many, many other nasal irrigation products on the market.
