    I am remarkably bad at this, and wonder if anyone has any tips.

    1. I have a problem getting saliva in the straw. I bend it so that it comes out toward of my nose and then comes down to my mouth, and that helps, but once I get a little saliva in there I have to blow harder and the problem just snowballs.

    2. I can?t figure out quite where to hold it. I would like just to use it inside my lips, but that blocks the holes. So I try right inside my lips, but I can?t seem to be precise enough with strength.

    3. I think I finally am mastering remembering the functions. I will share later the rules I remember to do things, but I?d be interested in anyone?s tips for that.

    Try bringing it the opposite direction so that the end of the straw is near the roof of your mouth behind the tip of your tongue. I find this is the area where it is easiest to regulate intra oral pressure. It is also the area where saliva is less likely to accumulate and enter the straw.
