how to unclog aerosol cans??
Mon, 03-08-2004 - 12:09pm
I have a real pet peeve, I was looking for my hairspray and I had 3 cans and none of them work. I tried to unclog them by using hot water, needle, just nothing works. Does anyone else have this problem? I also have a non aerosol can and the sprayer on it also does not work, is it just me???? Please respond.....also please don't let my user name scare you off, I just like halloween and its a nickname...spooky....thanks

Hi, I don't know the answer to this, but I bet Heloise does!

Hi bspooky,

I've had the same problem. Normally, very hot water and soap do the trick, but if they've failed, I would try rubbing alcohol on a rag (obviously a cottonball would leave cotton all over).

Hope this helps
