Anyone know of a way to get the paint out of spray cans when the nozzle does not work? I have several cans of Krylon that still have paint but the thing in the top of the can will not work with a new nozzle.

find a nozzle that is not clogged and just use it on the other full cans.
when one is done using spray can turn the can upside down and spray until spray turns clear that way there will be no paint in nozzle to dry and clog

I've let a can sit overnight, and peeled up the metal cap, allowing the gas to vent. Then I've poured the already thinned and ready to spray paint into the spray gun and went to it.
