Barn Boogers (dirt in your nose)

Barn Boogers. Do you know what I'm talking about? After grooming your horse, or a long day at a show, your nose is full of dirt.

How do you cope when simply blowing your nose doesn't clean it out?

I wet tissue and swish it around inside my nostrils until clean.

Just curious ;)

Saline nasal spray works wonders. At the moment I'm dealing not only with dust but hair up the nose, in the mouth and on my lunch
I keep lots of nasal spray, eye drops and moist facial wipes handy at all times. I came in yesterday hacking up hair, I sounded like the cat

I use a nice saline rinse at the end of a dusty day. I have problems with wiping my nose with a dirty hand, and then I get a dust mustache!

Gosh, I never even thought of the saline nasal spray/rinse. That's a great idea.

LOL, I know exactly what you mean by the hair... I can't wait until my horses are shed out.. that hair flies EVERYWHERE!

LOL!!! Those nasty illusive Dirty Boogers!

I usually just stick a kleenex up there and wipe away, but the saline thinggy is a great idea!

I'm a saline spray user - great after loading, unloading and stacking hay or grooming horses or cleaning stalls or... anything horse related, really ;)
