    I was thinking if you ran CLP through an airbrush, think it would make a bottle last longer while adding some PSI for dissolving power?

    Never tried, but I doubt it would make the bottle last longer. Probably help with the dissolving power though.

    CLP is probably best not inhaled in atomized form. It simply can't be good for your health.

    I don't know what PSI is, but it probably wouldn't be good for you either.

    I'm really just "thinking out loud" here....so add or delete your thoughts as necessary!!

    Good post......it got me thinking about "Powder Blast" (Birchwood-Casey?) which is essentially what you are talking about (avail. at Wal-Mart).....a good cleaner/solvent with a little P.S.I. push behind it to blow away much of the crud. I love the stuff, but you have to get it off plastic/polymer very fast or it starts eating away at it. The other draw back is, because of the ammt. of pressure they have in the can, it's easy to over-use and clean out a can of the stuff very quickly. But for all those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies it works really well. I swear by the stuff.

    Break Free CLP is good (IMHO) for what it does, but it's SO greasy, and +1 to the "atomized CLP" comment. The stuff is just nasty to breathe in.

    But overall, I think the concept is great. Give it a shot and let us know how it turns out!! (Just remember to do it outside, or crack a window, or wear a bubble-boy suit!)

    You'd have the cleanest airbrush in town.

    i like the aerosol can stuff too, but it's expensive. I figured it might be more feasible to buy a gallon or two of CLP and put it in a air gun.

    also, it doesn't necessarily have to be an atomizing air brush, i'm sure you can get different nozzle tips for a tighter spray.
