nose doesn't have to be a boring task; have a party and share
it with your friends.
This would make a fine companion gift for the Cleopatra
Nose Lifter: Together, they send the joyful holiday message:
''Your nose needs a LOT of work.''
The Nori Nasal Passage Cleaner is a hygiene device that cleans
out those pesky nasal passages in a unique manner that is hard
for the layperson to believe, or even look directly at.
''Blowing your nose is not enough!'' states the Nori promotional
material, adding that a nose ''needs regular cleaning to remove
buildup and residue.''
This is where the Nori, which looks like a small mutant teapot,
comes into play. According to the instructions, you fill it with
salt water. Then: ''While leaning over a sink, tilt your head
sideways and slightly insert the spout into one nostril. Important!
Your mouth must stay open! The salt water will flow through the
nasal passage and come out the other nostril.''
You read that correctly: The water goes into one nostril and
comes out the other . So this is not just a hygiene device: It
also would make a great ''ice-breaker'' at formal dinner parties
(''Hey everybody! Watch THIS!'') We understand that Martha Stewart
has at least one of these devices in every room of her house.
