      It seems like just about all my GM sprayers are clogged. I tried soaking in hot water, 409 and still nothing. Any suggestions?

        I hate that. I take off the long clear part and then soak them all in alcohol. It doesn't always work though. I usually just pour some into a mini mister, but that is such a pain in the ass. 🙁

            Sometimes I soak them in soap and water too. I need a sink in my scrap loft.

              I soak them in hot water then try to spray, soak them again, try to spray etc.. It usually works for me. I will try the alcohol next time. But you're right it is a PITA

                That's why I hate Glimmer Mists sprays. I only have a few and I hate them!

                  For the record, the alcohol didn't work. It even broke my sprayer. Melted the plastic, guess using 91% alcohol was a bad idea.

                      Hey feel free to come use some of that alcohol on mine!
                      Oh and drop me some off too, just don't tell my doctor!

                        WHAAAAAT? I just use rubbing alcohol. That's crazy!

                                Sometimes I poke a thin needle into the hole where the mist comes out and that works.
