Gretchen, 

Thank you for the question. Anything you do with your nose during the post-operative period should be cleared by your rhinoplasty surgeon. Each surgeon has their own protocol and some of the recommendations will depend on the details of your surgery. In general, I recommend a light glycolic wash by our aesthetician after the nasal dressings are removed around day 10. This helps remove the remaining adhesive and avoid nasal breakouts. I hope this helps. Take care
