Works for Me Wednesday


If you use spray paint, this tip will make it easier. At the end of painting, turn the paint can upside down and press the nozzle until you see 'clear' or 'whitish' spray. This clears the valve so that next time you pick up the paint can you don't have to hunt around for a pin to clean out the opening. I've tried this many times and it 'works for me!'

I wonder if that will work for spray starch as well! I always manage to get that nozzle clogged up.

I don't use hairspray or starch, but I would think it would work--the principle is the same!

Excellent advice. Now all I need to do is to declog the ones I have now, then follow this bit of advice.
