Is there a way to unclog Glimmer Mist?

It might help to rinse the sprayer under warm water.

Actually did that before I read your post and it seems to have worked. Thanks.

I was going to suggest rinsing it in water as well. I'm glad that you were able to get it to spray again.

Thought I'd pass along a tip I saw awhile ago.
I saw a video a long time ago talking about many of the different mists out there and what to do and not do. I specifically recall when it came to Tattered Angels Glimmer mists they said Do
Not shake them. Apparently that encourages clogging . Instead she suggested swirling the bottle around while keeping the tip upright( not sure if that makes sense). For the other kinds that have a small ball in there for mixing, you can shake them. I have to remind myself of it each time I pick up a T.A. Mist

Mine clog but that's probably because I don't use them enough. Even if I swirl them instead of shaking they still clog. I have to take off the sprayer top and run hot water through the whole thing. Then I usually have to take off the very tip of the nozzle and run water through that. That is usually where my "glimmer" gets hard and clogs the nozzle. After that it works beautifully.
