|Suspension contains garlic powder and ground cayenne pepper both clogging the spray outlet on my spray bottle. Any suggestions for sprayers that do not clog? Suspension also contains water, eggs and sour cream.

|According to this recipe:
I am quoting: "Letting the liquid rest in a lidded bowl for two to three days will incorporate the spiciness and smell of the egg and garlic powder, leaving you with a potent deer repellent. By transferring the odorous liquid to a clean spray bottle, you'll be able to spray down your plants all over your yard to keep deer away."
To my mind, that would mean that letting the mixture settle for 2-3 days you would be pouring off the liquid and leaving the solids that have settled in the bottom of the mixing container.
You could go one step further and filter the resulting liquid through a coffee filter, or a paint strainer, or a jelly bag - whatever you have at hand. After that, any decent sprayer would work.

|If by chance the nozzle does get clogged for some reason or other, it can be easily cleaned. I take it off and put the nozzle end in a glass of soapy water and swish it around. Then I put the bottom end in the soapy water and squirt into the sink. That works well for me.|
