    ^^^ i dunnno what that guy used... but if you can get paint thinner which i'm guessing you can just put your caps in a jar... fil it with paint thinner for a while and they should clean up nice....

    i used what i said i used?.... :rolleyes: :huh:

    "4.Then fill it with Trichloroethylene (Tetrachloroethylene supposedly works better,not sure on that though)"

    you can get it at most chemical stores or places that supply chemicals to highschools/colleges/universities as most of those have science classes unless it's some effed up school aha.,,loook in your yellowpages of your phonebook maybe to see if tere's anyplaces in your area? idk just a thought? sorry if i'm not being logical with that one <_< :blink:

    Just use acetone or paint thinner.

    it doesn't work as well though,i've left caps sitting in mineral spirits for around a week or 2 and it had no effect whatsoever except for the paint that was on the cap rubbed off,it did nothing at all to the paint clogged inside of it

    Paint thinner isn't always just mineral spirits, sometimes a mix of things. And acetone is a better solvent again.

    And "THAT SHIT GIRLS USE TO REMOIL NAIL POLISH SHIT" is usually acetone. It generally overpriced when you buy it as nail polish remover, try hardware and auto shops for a better deal if you're buying.

    how do i clean my caps? e z way to to keep caps clean for nextime if u dun wanna have to grab them from the store all the time is to just turn yer can upsidedown and spray that way just compressed air comes out and not paint....its a better idea to clean caps with krylon cans cause they are way over pressured anyhow so u don't have to wrry about waste and it's stong enough to force out the clog..

    one other thing.. a cap thats on it way to getting cloged is actully pritty usefull for the fine details for like them pencil thin lines. so take advantage of that b4 u blast them clean again

    Get a big glass jar,

    Mix paint thinner/white spirit with nail polish remover, bleach, rubbing alcohol, goof off and then spray aload of deoderant into a plastic lid and pore it in.. it should fizz and be like a fizzy drink fizzyness. put you caps into there and sturr. put the lid on loosely, (so the gasses can escape) then when you see there clean pull out.

    If the caps work but are just dirty as hell dont use deoderant. the reason i put deoderant in is to flush out the insides..(its like rubbing alcohol)
