What is it with cheap plastic? Broke two spray bottles from Lowes. The last one was horrible, pinched my palm when using it. I would like something more reliable and ergonomic.

Mike,
RUN don't walk to your nearest CHEF/COOK/RESTAURANT SUPPLY Store and buy your spray bottles there. Great for in a hot kitchen or hot bending. While you are there, check out the SS cake decorating spatulas - great for fret board extension removal, bridge removal. Accurate cooking thermometers for your glue pot. And if you like to cook, you are screwed! Its like walking into Lee Valley Tool with a few hours and a few dollars to spare. :lol:

I use empty domestic cleaning product spray bottles, e.g. window cleaner.

This is a bit of a revelation for me.

When I think back, I realize that most of the empty spray bottles I buy just stop working for no reason, and do so far sooner than one would expect. In contrast, I have never had a genuine Windex bottle just stop working.

I had one of the junky bottles die on me just last week. I'm going to stop buying them and switch to Windex bottles. Life is too short to spend it being angry about a bottle deciding it needs a break from doing its job.

3 years ago, I got fed up with terrible spray bottles for ironing my shirts and got a bottle called "Master Blaster" from Amazon. So much better and still never had a problem with it.

LOL! I was just so pissed. Dropped another water bottle and the head broke. It was a POS compared to the first one. Live and learn. But spray bottles in a guitar shop are like screwdrivers in a machine shop. Need them always. Please don't fail. Argh!

I've been using the same Lowes bought one for a couple years now. You just watch now, the next time I use it, it will break.
