Keep those sprayers clean...


Ive seen a few posts of what peeps do to remove the lanolin deposits on sprayers and tanks, but Im not sure if I have seen this tip. Put the hottest water you can get into whatever sprayer you are using, then pour a generous amount of pure bleach into the bottle or tank...Shake vigorously. Spray some of the content out so that it gets into the spray head to soak the parts inside. Let sit over night. Wash it out, spray water out until it doesnt feel "slick" anymore. Your sprayer is now SUPER clean. I use sprayers that have a clear bottle, sometimes I can see the lanolin falling off the sides of the bottle as soon as I pour the bleach in....

I really cannot believe you would put bleach in any sprayer and then attempt to use it on a vehicle. :hmmm

This just seems like a really, really bad idea in my opinion. Any lingering bleach at all that gets on someone's expensive interior :gasp I wouldn't want to be responsible for that. :twocents Just sayin....

Resurrected , but pertinent post  :thumb , I was always a J/J person but found it coagulated on the inside of the tank and plugged the filter quickly, I switch between Tint Slime and Dawn now and don't have that problem, whatever you use you can easily clean tank with a white scrubbie pad , rinse good, clean the filter and you're ready to go. For spray bottles ,some hot water ,shake them ,rinse a couple of times and good to go.

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.

 Many commonly used tools and techniques in use today are direct results of this site. Become a member and join us on the forum. It has grown to include members from all over the world, from consumers with questions, to new tinters, seasoned veterans, industry representatives and innovators.
