Topic: Broken sprayer:(

Hey guys, I need some helphttp://www.fragrantica.com/board/richedit/smileys/YahooIM/63.gif  .

The sprayer of my http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1294.jpg Alexander McQueen My Queen is broken (not like the most sprayers wich can be detached and attached again to the bottle) and the fragrance is practically unusable.
Could somebody suggest me what to do , to be able to reuse it again?

Re: Broken sprayer:(

Is there a way to take off the spray nozzle and jam the spray tube down into the bottle, then pour out the contents into a new atomizer?  I actually had a spray tube dislodge once, and I decanted the contents through the tiny hole in the top.  Is this a possibility for your bottle too?

Re: Broken sprayer:(

I did some serching around for you and found this info from another site, which might work, worth a try.  actually the tube inside the perfume is a tube, so why not see if you have any sprayer tops from something else but look for one of the same size

Remember that spray nozzles can be interchangeable. So, if you lose one, as so often happens, know that you can switch with another of the same size - Just wash them out thoroughly between switching from one to the other. (You might also want to save old spray mechanisms for spray bottles of cleaner, etc. - as the trigger sprays have a tendency to wear out after a while.)

Excellent idea. I started saving spray nozzles and triggers a few months ago. It's great for when you buy a NEW product, and the nozzle doesn't work properly, or spray in a manner that you would prefer.

Nothing smells better then a freshly bathed Sheltie!

Re: Broken sprayer:(

Even if the spray is broken completely, you can decant your perfume into another bottle, using a medical syringe (the bigger syringe, the easier it will work) and a large needle (for intravenous injections), which you can buy in any farmacy.

Re: Broken sprayer:(

does any one if there is any place to buy replacements for the actual spray tops, the little round metal part that sits atop the tube with a hole in it to actually spray the parfume?
