Help! What To Do When Your Perfume Bottle Won't Spray

What's a girl to do when her still full perfume bottle just won't spay anymore? Talk about frustrating! Fear not - Fragrance Familia has some tips for you before you think about discarding it.

Let's explore some quick fixes to get your perfume spraying again.

Step 1: Check the Nozzle

The most common culprit is a clogged nozzle. Perfume can dry out and block the spray mechanism. Here's how to fix it:

  1. Remove the nozzle cap.
  2. Rinse it under warm, not hot, water.
  3. Use a pin to gently clear any blockage.
  4. Wipe it down and reattach.

Test the spray. If it's still not working, move to the next step.

Step 2: Examine the Pump

Sometimes the issue lies with the pump. To troubleshoot:

  1. Ensure the pump is properly attached to the bottle.
  2. Check for any visible damage.
  3. If it seems loose or damaged, it might need replacing.

Step 3: Inspect the Tube

A disconnected or blocked tube inside the bottle can also cause issues:

  1. Look inside the bottle to see if the tube is attached to the pump.
  2. If it’s detached, try to reattach it with tweezers.
  3. Ensure the tube is not bent or clogged.


Step 4: Try a Gentle Shake

Sometimes, air bubbles can disrupt the spray mechanism:

  1. Gently shake the bottle to dislodge any air bubbles.
  2. Avoid vigorous shaking as this can damage the perfume's composition.

Most spray issues can be resolved with these simple steps. However, if your fragrance still isn't spraying, it might be time to consider a new perfume bottle.
