The key word in your question is "infection". If it's bacterial, you may need a doctor to give you an antibiotic to effect the "cure" that you are seeking. So I guess my answer is that you can't. Without medical treatment, you are limited to trying to give yourself palliative care which may relieve your symptoms but won't necessarily cure the infection. Quite frankly, a genuine sinus infection ought to be treated and not ignored.
Lucky you...I'm an expert. You can get better quicker by getting lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids and take aspirin (or whatever you take for fever). If your sinus drainage is yellow, you do not need a doctor. If it is green, you have a secondary infection and then you MUST go to the doctor.

I don't know about sinuses once they are infected but mine were plugged badly and I went to the doctor and she told me to try NeilMed to clear my sinus. It was the best thing I tried. It sounded like nothing I wanted to try but it was a life saver. here is the web site www.neilmed.com its chemical free good luck

Meet a Pranic healer. It is proved that pranic healing cures Sinus infections, Migrane, Asthama completely. It will never come again in your life if proper care taken.
if you have an infection you need antibiotics, unless your own body's natural defence kicks in.
Do not put vicks vapo rub up your nose-not good.
Use nasal flushes. (a little stronger than sprays) and you will probably have to use a sudafed to decongest and survive during the day. Also, make sure to use vitamin C and Echinacea to beef up your immune system while you fight off the infection...and get plenty of rest.
SINUTAB - lots of water - juices
no dairy products until it is gone - then there is less snot to manufacture in the sinus cavity - water clears it all out
SOME REMEDIES TO CURE SINUS INFECTIONS
#1. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is our #1 favorite remedy for stopping sinus infections. We wish more people knew about this amazing home remedy for sinus infections. The idea is to take apple cider vinegar before the sinus infection occurs, which for most people is at the start of allergies, colds, flu, etc.
We have found that when apple cider vinegar is taken either as a daily tonic or at the first sign of an allergy or cold (i.e., sinus headache, stuffy nose, watery eyes), one can completely stop the histamine response or allergic reaction. If you happen to have one of the brands of ice cream mentioned above, you should also take a large dose of apple cider vinegar the moment you get home. You will NOT get a sinus infection if you drink apple cider vinegar right away!
There are a couple ways you can drink apple cider vinegar. One way is to put 1/8 to 1/4 cup ACV in 16 oz of water and sip it throughout the day. The other method is to gulp the mixture at once. If you already have a sinus infection, keep drinking a mixture of ACV and water throughout the day for several days.
Please remember -- the key to success is to use apple cider vinegar before a sinus infection appears (i.e. during the first stages of a flu or allergy attack, or after you've eaten a bowl of ice cream).
You may ask why ACV alleviate sinus congestion so quickly?
The answer is that it thins mucous almost immediately. One of the first things you will notice after drinking apple cider vinegar is that the color of your mucous goes from white or green and thick, to thin and clear. The thinning of mucous is the key to kicking your sinus infection.
