Hi, I've had a lot of trouble unclogging the small tip of the freehand bottle. I've tried water, soaking in alcohol, sticking a needle in tip.. It still clogs. Tips anyone??

I had the same problem and had to go to a larger tip. Since then I haven't had any problems Smile

i don't bother with trying to clean my tips anymore... i just buy extra tips and throw away the clogged ones... so much easier than trying to clean it when it gets stuck and there is a line of people. goes a lot faster...

I have poofer bottles and just cut the hole a little bigger so it would actually come out rather than just poof out

Get one of those wire twist ties that normally come with glad sandwich bags and peel off the paper intact with it. The thinner the wire the better. then take the tip off and put it on a bottle that is filled with small amount of acetone. Hold it upside down and stick the wire in the needle. Twist and pull in and out until the liguid acetone pours out with no problem. I like to hold it upside own in a little shot glass once its unclugged and squeeze the acetone in and out several time in till its completely clear.
