When using spray paint, the nozzle can quickly become clogged, especially if the paint is allowed to dry. That can mean the spray will come out unevenly, compromising the quality of your paint job.
 
To keep the nozzle clean, clear and ready to use, try this simple trick. Simply remove the nozzle and place it in a glass jar, then cover it with turpentine and allow to sit overnight.
 
The next day, pour the turps through a funnel to catch the nozzle, then wipe it clean and it will be ready to go next time.
