    When you're done using it, put in on an empty can and hold the can upside down and spray for around 10 seconds. The extra pressure in the can should clean it.

    i usually take the cap and put it on my mouth and blow the extra paint out after using. easier then using air pressure because a lil paint always comes out even if the can is upside down.

    yeah I use some spray goo gone, just spray the cap on it after using it, sometimes works right after the clog too, any spray graffiti remover, or paint thinner should work

    the upside down method doesn`t work by some cans (Belton Molotow as example...still have to try the Monata Golds)

    the best way to avoid clogged caps is not to paint. it happens and it isn't a big deal.

    upsidedown method usually works for me...full can or not. But for fuck sake, i hate when people say, "just don't do graffiti...that solves every problem." Thats a load of shit. so shut it...

    first off caps are super cheap
    just buy more
    but if u really wanna get the most of your money just hold the can upside down and spray until no more paint is comin out straight from the insrtuctions off the back of the mtn cans

    is there any way to get all the paint out of the can with out getting all the air out? cause you could by one of those 99 cent canas at walmart. the really crappy paint and use that just to clean caps. i mean you could just spray all the paint out but im lookin for a way where you can keep more paint.

    you can use one of the compressed air cans for cleaning computer parts for the cap issue. they sell them all over.

    thats what i do works well, also an easier way than holding cans upside down is to just bring an empty can put it on there and spray a few times. good luck
