    just brought a foam gun thinking it would save some money in the long term not throwing out half used cans that are blocked
    Reading the instructions for the No nonsense foam & cleaner and guns it seems to make no sense!

    1. It says .....Don't unscrew part used cans
    2. That means you can't clean the gun with emptying a whole cartridge
    3. But the gun instructions ...only store gun after cleaning.

    So it seems to mean you have to use a whole can at a time, its cheaper to use the ordinary tins and chuck them half used for small jobs, if you don't the gun is blocked.

    So the whole thing seems pointless. Think i'm going to take it back and go back to ordinary tins without the gun

    instruction 3, that's assuming you've emptied the foam can - so you'd run the cleaner through for a few squirts before storing the gun (without a foam can attached)

    just make sure it's fully closed off and wipe clean to end of the nozzle, there's no need to clean the gun after every use, and you don't have to use the entire can
