Halodine® Nasal Antiseptic Swabstick
Hold the swab so that Halodine reads left to right, gripping with the left thumb and forefinger at the blue stripe. The tube is scored to snap just above the blue stripe. Then grip the handle with the thumb and forefinger of your right hand just to the right of the blue stripe, close to the shoulder of the tube. Now just snap and twist. You don’t need much force. Insert swab comfortably into nostril. Rotate swab around nostril for about 15 seconds, then repeat with other nostril.

Press down on the pump and spray twice into the mouth. Swish around mouth for 15 seconds, then spit out excess. Avoid eating, drinking, or rinsing mouth for at least 10 minutes after.
Halodine® Nasal Antiseptic Liquid Packet
Gently blow your nose to clear both nostrils and discard tissue. Open a single packet by folding along the line. To avoid spilling while opening, maintain packet with narrow end of spout pointing up. Then place the narrow end of the packet opening at the right nostril and gently pinch the left nostril. Lift chin and tilt head back squeezing out all the liquid while inhaling through the right nostril. Repeat on the other nostril.

Empty contents into a small cup and add twice the amount of water for a total fill of 12ml. Swish vigorously in mouth for about 15 seconds, gargle and then spit out. Avoid eating, drinking, or rinsing mouth for at least 10 minutes after.
