Combine 1/4 cup boiling water with one teaspoon of Epsom salt and three drops of iodine. Let mixture cool until it's comfortable to the touch. Saturate a cotton ball with this mixture and dab on blackheads. This will allow them to loosen so they can be easily squeezed with a gauze pad.

Thbis is what my grandmother taught me to do for any kind of blemishes. Mix 1/3 cup oatmeal, regular, not instant, with the juice of 1/2 lime. Stir until mixture has the consistency of cooked oatmeal. Apply to affected area, or the whole face if desired. Let dry, and rinse off with cool clear water. This works best if the face has just been freshly washed with simple soap and warm water before hand, which helps open and prepare the pores. I am almost fifty, and I still perform this home facial regularly once or twice a week. If you've seen my picture, you can tell I don't look fifty.

Not sure if it's available internationally, but in the US there is a product called "Biore Strips". It's almost like a piece of tape that you wet & put on the nose. After it dries you peel it off & all the blackheads come off with the strip.
