I've also used a blender and a cheesecloth strainer.

Two ideas:  we bought a "cheap" electric blender and use an old pint jar on
it to mix powders with water, rather than shaking.

Also, my small sprayer has a screen/filter on the bottom to help prevent
"stuff" from getting to the nozzle.

Hello All,
 
I have a question for all small, pump sprayer users.
 
I have two one gallon, pump sprayers, and no matter how diligent I am with
rinsing either with water, and water with dish soap after usage, I cannot
get half way through spraying my one gallon of spray, without the darn tip
clogging. 
 
I premix my powders with warm water in a glass jar, shake them up, then add
that concentrate to sprayer.  I even use reverse osmosis filtered water
thinking that hard water was my issue and I still have tip clogging
problems.
 
Is there a secret to prevent tip clogging in small pump sprayers?  I am
totally frustrated and disgusted with the tip clogging problem at this
point.
 
I have even filled them with warm soapy water after rinsing and allowed that
to all spray out, and still I get the problems.  Should I use vinegar or
ammonia as a final rinse?
 
Thanks,
Tom
