salt water rinses.....

the warm salt water rinsing makes me vomit......ideas suggestions?
Are you making it too strong ? You only need a weeny bit of salt, I forget the ratio....something like 1/4 teaspoon to a cup of warm water.
Silly question - but you're not swallowing the water, are you?

I only ask because I can recall a dentist somewhere (maybe on here) saying how he'd had to tell some who was also feeling sick from salty rinsing to spit the water out!

So, just thought I'd mention it ....... :)
