Last week, I had the cold that everybody had—sore throat, mild fever, and general misery. I begged my doctor for a prescription, but instead she gave me something better: directions to the nearest Duane Reade for SaltAire Sinus Relief. The organic saline solution is designed to clear nasal passages and reduce the painful effects of allergies and colds. And despite the slightly awkward way you use it—squirting it gently up your nose, then trying hard not to cough—it had me breathing easy in minutes.
$12.49 at Duane Reade, multiple locations, duane-reade.com.
