How to Unclog your Sprays

I openly admit that I have a problem. I'm highly addicted to the spray mists that are out in the market (as can been seen with my "small" collection).

The thing is that these babies get clogged pretty easily. So after some colourful language that has left my mouth, I think I finally figured out what everyone was talking about when they said "just run it under water" to clear the nozzle! Here is a mini tutorial with photos to maybe help some of you that ran into the problems that I had. I will say that in the end, I unclogged all my sprays....Happy Dance!

Remove spray top and run warm water over nozzle hole to get rid of ink.  Pump until all ink has cleared the transfer tube.

Pull off top and run warm water through nozzle cap

Also run water through transfer tube from top area, pushing down the "exit tip".  Should clear out all the "gunk"

 Replace the nozzle cap and start pumping warm water through. If the first run does not work, repeat again. Usually by the second try, it is working fine for me.
