You can do a saline nasal wash (Google for directions), or just use a saline nasal spray. It helps a lot and you can use the nasal spray often, as it's not harmful. Use your thumb to put pressure on your face just below your eyes. Press as hard as you can stand too. You will feel tingling and it will hurt some. Hold it as long as you can, then when you let go, your nose should unclog.

How come when you sleep on one side youre congested on the other side?

Gravity. When you sleep on one side, your maxillary sinuses drain - such that the one "above" drains into the one "below". This usually causes the sleeper to switch to the other side, so as to get relief - in reverse. Switching from one side to the other does actually help a little. When fluid in the sinuses is mobile, it tends not to congeal - and is "processed" better, limiting the problem, overall.

Why can you still breathe if your nose is blocked?

If you can breathe through a nose that is entirely blocked, that's amazing. Considering the fact that only one side is stopped up, and the other side is stuffy, runny ect, then yes you can still breathe. Its just inflamed blood vessels in the nose that results in congesting. Sometimes all blood vessels aren't affected, therefore making the nose partially blocked, resulting in the ability to breathe.
