- Does this exist? An aerosol can full of paint thinner
Been doing a bit of spraying with aerosols lately (because I cannot be arsed using a gun for little jobs) and just looking at a cloggy nozzle, thought, if only I had an aerosol loaded with cellulose thinner, that’d clean the nozzle out with a spray.
Seems obvious, but doesn’t seem to exist?Posted 2 years agojonbaMember
You can get isopropyl alcohol in spray can from IT places. IT will work if the paint hasn’t dried
Disc brake cleaner might work?Posted 2 years agoneilwheelMember
If I’m using rattle cans I have a small takeaway pot and lid with acetone in it. If one blocks, swap from a fresh can and put the blocked one in the acetone to soak for a while. If you keep the nozzles from empty cans you soon have a range of clean nozzles to rotate through.
The PU foam cleaner contains acetone but the tip is much wider than on paint cans.Posted 2 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

Does the old spray upside down before you put the can down trick no longer work?
The wastage offends my scottish soul, I paid 1p for that bit of spray!
I do have a tin of thinners that I can throw caps into to clean, and a stash of spares off old cans but it just seemed like a thing that should be a thing- instant cleaner. Ah well, cheers folks!Posted 2 years ago
