Steve's recipe is what I used. Sometimes I did it a few times an hour. Definitely helped me better than over the counter or prescription mouthwashes.

1 cup water, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda. After treatment ended, some tastes came back quickly. It was easier to use the rinse, formulated with 1 cup water and 1/2 tsp each of the salt and baking soda.

I tried 1 Tbs of salt and Tsp of baking soda ratio of different amount of water. I didn't find that it did much for the mucus. If y9ou find a formula that works for you please pass it on!

Per my wonderful caregiver, it's 2 teaspoons each of salt and baking soda per gallon container. She wrote it down from somewhere, suffers from CRS, it runs in our household.

Be well, God bless.

I know they gave me something, but I used a Tbs of baking soda, about a 2" of water in a glass, and the same amount of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide).....
