that's a great idea, that will save my lips for kissing my wife hello or goodbye, on different subject I bought a calibration tube for a sprayer years ago that when you went so many feet it gave you a direct readout of gallons per acre, I've been looking to no avail, any ideas?
Just for the record, it isn't "air" you're paying for, but propellant in a can without an additional product. Which is why the can freezes in your hand, and consequently can also be used to freeze small diameter liquid lines when turned upside down.
Re: the calibration tube. Check with Sprayer Specialties (800-351-1587) or Redball Spraying Systems (877-332-2551). They may not have those calibration tubes, but should know who handles them.
