I have a mostly-plastic spray bottle that I use to spray water. I used to be able to set it to spray in a wide cone or a narrow stream, but now it only wants to spray in a narrow stream. Any ideas of how I should try to diagnose and fix this?
The inlet at the bottom of the tube feeding into the nozzle seems fine. At various points in time I have used this to spray alcohol, vinegar/water mixture, bleach/water mixture, and hydrogen peroxide/water mixture. Sometimes I have stored it full for a long time.
Update: There was a spring inside the nozzle with a plastic piece at the end; it looks like this got knocked askew. I messed it up more while trying to fix it and the spray profile got a little worse, so maybe the problem was caused by an issue with this piece. Bonus question: Does anyone know where I could get a replacement for these components?
