In case one becomes impure during Ramadan the method of ghusl is that one cleans the mouth well and does not gargle. Similarly one should clean the nose with water and should not take water heavily to an extent that water reaches up to the brain. Fast does not break if water is put in the mouth and nose, rather fast breaks when water goes down the throat or to the brain.
