Ranger's Glossy Accents How many bottles have I tossed? Love this stuff, but the tip clogged every single time. I'd stick pins in the top, trim the top, run the bottle under warm water, etc. Nothing worked and I'd ruin the bottle. I would buy more thinking that somehow a new bottle would be better.
No, I was the problem, not the product.
Finally, asked on Facebook for advice and someone pointed out that Jennifer McGuire has posted that the way to avoid a clogged tip, is to use it, and then tap the bottle until the glossy accents recede out of the tip into the bottle. If any remain in the tip, push out, tap and repeat until the tip is clear.
See that glossy joy above? Sometimes it takes a little patience, but so far I've used my one bottle repeatedly and have had no reason to toss it off the terrace.
Although this tip is obvious, we can save money slowing down, reading directions, and getting (and following) advice!
