I have a spray mist which is spraying out in a curved stream across my page, rather than equally in all directions. I have cleaned the little part where the mist actually comes out with a wet cloth, and there wasn't anything blocking it. Any ideas?? Thanks for your help!

Maybe try rinsing the sprayer part off with hot water... or pick the hole with a pin. Hope you get it working. If not, take it back to the store and get another one.

I have soaked the sprayed in super hot water for a few miuntes and then spray the hot water through it to clean it out. Works every time!

I pop the little top off and rinse it under warm water.

my glimmer mist does this all the time. I pop off the little top part soak in hot water and then (this may be gross to you) I suck through the hole and clear it out. I used the can air for a while but Im out so I just do that..

I learned in a class that you can hook up a can of compressed air to the nozzle, and blow the clog out.

I also learned to "swirl" not "shake". Shaking the bottle causes the glitter to clog.

If you just can't get it to work, you can always put some of the mist in a mini-mister. Those are the best spray bottles!

Mini misters do rock and I have swapped out a few of those.

BUT, first...soak in hot water and use canned air to blow out the nozzle. That will usually take care of it.

Oh, and I don't care what classes or anyone tells you...you can shake that bottle!

Yes! I think they tell you to do that to cover up the fact that they don't spray worth a darn and to make you think that its your fault because your not swirling it. Its bunk as far as I'm concerned. I shake the ******** out of mine and have never had a problem.
