Using the Mouth Atomizer

This is part two of a multi-part series on using the mouth atomizer.  Click here to go to part one.

To use the mouth atomizer, first make certain that the tubes are clean and clear of obstructions or foreign matter.  Examine them to ensure that you can see clearly down the tubes.  If they're blocked, run a thin wire down the tube to remove the blockage.  Remember, the cleaner the mouth atomizer, the better it will work.

Next, you should spread out the two legs of the atomizer to form an upside down "L" shape.  It may be necessary to adjust the legs slightly to get the atomizer to work best, but an upside down "L" is very close to the perfect position.

To use the atomizer, put one tube in the liquid you want to spray and then blow onto the end of the other tube.  It's best to try this with water first.  If you can spray water, you've learned how to blow correctly and can use the atomizer on other liquids.

If you're having trouble getting anything to spray (this is common at first), it's most likely because you're not blowing hard enough.  It takes a LOT of force to get the atomizer to work properly.

That's it.  It's really fairly simple.  But it's usually not easy the first time.  It takes a bit of practice, but once you've mastered the skill you'll find that the atomizer works very well.  It's probably the least expensive way to evenly spread a liquid over another surface.
