Clogged Spray Thingy?

I have one of those little spray pumps... not the huge ones with a tank and hose, but the kind with a green top that you pump and press the bottom and it sprays?

Anyhoo, the thing it clogged so it doesn't spray well anymore... anyone know how to unclog it? I don't feel like buying another one...

try soaking it in hot water and dish soap. Then run some hot water through the sprayer and it should be all good

Vinegar, CLR (calcium, lime, and rust), anything else that dissolves mineral deposits.

if the sprayer end is adjustable you should be able to unscrew it all the war and use a pin to unclog the ports. I'ld have to see a picture.

CLR all the way. Just rinse thoroughly with salt water.

Hot water will often ruin the sprayer nossle (I have two broken ones because of it) I would just take it apart and unclog it with a needle

I soaked the head of mine with vinegar and then rinsed it out... works fine now. Hope this helps.
