Magically Make Your Cleaning Spray Bottle Work In Any Direction

Business Blog

If you're working in a janitorial position, you might find that reaching certain nooks and crannies with a spray cleaner is difficult. Most spray bottles only work in an upright position. However, with a few little tools and a few minutes of your time, you can make those spray bottles spray in any direction you choose, and this guide explains how.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

  • Spray bottle
  • Flexible Tubing that will fit the sprayer on the bottle
  • Ruler (optional)
  • Scissors
  • 2 or 3 stainless steel nuts that fit well on the tube

Step 2: Measure and Cut the Tube

Measure the length of tube you will need. It should reach from the top of the sprayer to just a few centimeters away from the bottom of the bottle. If you're unsure, use a ruler to be exact.

Your cleaning hack will cause the tube to slide around in the bottle when needed, so you don't want it to drag or get caught on the bottom of the bottle. In fact, it is the movement that allows the bottle to spray in any direction you need, even upside down. Once you have the perfect length measured out, cut the tube to size.

Step 3: Attach the Tube to the Sprayer

Attach the flexible tubing you just cut to the sprayer from your bottle. The tubing should either screw on or fit snugly into the base of the nozzle. Test the fit by placing the tube in some water and pumping the sprayer a few times to see if the seal is tight and the suction is strong. There should be no water coming out around the connection of the tube and nozzle.

Step 4: Attach the Stainless Steel Nuts to the Tube

Attach the stainless steel nuts to the bottom of the tube. Depending on the girth of the tube you may need to attach two or three. The nuts should cause the tube to bend and move toward the solution in your bottle when you tip it.

Step 5: Put the Bottle Back Together

Fill the bottle with your desired cleaning solution and reassemble the bottle. Test it out and make sure it works well, then begin cleaning those tough to reach places in style.

When you're finished with this spray-bottle hack, you won't have to wonder how you are going to clean those nooks and crannies any longer. Do this on all the cleaning spray bottles that you use, so that your job gets done quicker and more efficiently. For assistance, talk to a professional like Performance Plus.

Storage Facilities: Finding the Right One

For a brief time, I found myself between houses. This came about when I sold my old one but the home I was having built was not quite ready. Since the buyers wanted in, I had to place most of my belongings in a self-storage facility. Fortunately, I found one that had everything that I needed. The facility had around the clock security and units that were the right size for my needs. There was even air conditioning to keep my stored items safe from the heat. If you need storage space for a short time, there are specific features you want. Stick with me and you will know what questions to ask before you make any type of commitment to a storage company.
