    Default unclogging cans?

    I am going to apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place. Onward to my question though, I have a couple of cans of ironlak that are clogged and it comes out like silly string. any and all helpful comments are welcomed, I've cleaned out caps and tried new ones as well. now I'm at a stand still. Thanks everybody!

    Soak in 99.9% ethanol for an hour and then blow the gunk out.

    hes on about the actual cans not the caps.

    if the problem actually lies with the can then i dont think there is much you can do, the only thing i can recommend is shaking them up really well, putting them in a tub of fairly warm water for like 20 mins and then shake them up again and then see what happens.

    failing that email ironlak themselves

    Don't use Ironlak but here's how I handle this w/ other cans- shake well, like really well, at least 1 minute. Then you need the fattest cap you can get, like straight blaster cap, you need to blow out as much of that gunk and silly string as you can. Usually only takes me 2-3 sprays to accomplish this and then ready to go. 1st spray or so you need to hold down the cap and just let as much of that crap out as you can.

    Turn it upside down and spray so only the aerosol comes out and that should unclogg both the cap and the can

    I find (this is more for future) that when your finished with the can but it isn't empty spray it upside down until only the aerosol comes out, like what ARCOS said. stops clogs
