Maybe it's just me, but I've never found an effective nose-blowing technique that clears my nose without having some boogers end up on my shirt.

An effective nose-blow requires that there be a certain amount of space between the tissue and the nose. For me, this invariably leads to the errant "booger-on-the-shirt."

I'm not one to just squeeze a nostril and blow. While effective, it's not exactly polite. Then again, neither is walking around with boogers on one's shirt.

So, suggestions?

Forget the tissue altogether. Just projectile-vomit that nostril-nasty in a downward motion and let it run down your filthy legs...

get one of them little blue turkey baster looking things that they use for babies to suck boogers out of their nose.

Just pick it already and be done with it. Of course, the problem is once you start picking it's hard to stop.

I like the thumb pick with the four other fingers covering the nose to camoflauge the pick.

Forget the blowing and just use your finger.

This is the method used by farmers. Gently place two fingers on the outside of the left nostril. While aiming nose hole away from your shirt, blow like a m****er f***er. Repeat for second side. Errant boogers should hang from the nose. Take a tissue and wipe away. In case you have no tissue or hanky, wipe nose on your sleeve.


Reference: Not Necessarily the News; sniglets.

Originated by Ron Nilssen and his co-worker. Neither of them survived the ridicule that was found while they were demonstrating the technique.

If it worked for them.....

Good lord. I've already stated that the old, "press and blow" methodology was not polite.

I use the one nostril approach. It may be loud, but its necessary. If its a stubborn booger, jam the finger up there and pick it out.

You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose but you can't pick your friend's nose.

I can't believe how many of you don't partake in the "one finger Turbo".

Plug one side, and shoot a snot rocket for distance.

Quick, Effective, Environmentally Friendly..........Unless you're in Abercrombie and Fitch

You just must not be a very accomplished 1 finger Turbo'er.

I've never gotten any boogers on my shirt when blowing my nose. I blow my nose quite a bit, however. I'm something of an obsessive-compulsive when it comes to blowing noses.
