You need to ‘prime’ the spray by pumping the spray a few times until a fi ne mist is produced. 1 Hold the bottle as shown and make sure it is pointed away from you. 2 Put your forefi nger and middle fi nger on the collar either side of the nozzle and put your thumb underneath the bottle. 3 Keep your thumb still, and press down with your fi ngers to pump the spray. •If the spray does not work and you think it may be blocked, you will need to clean it. Please see the section below, Cleaning your spray. •Never try to unblock or enlarge the tiny spray hole with a pin or other sharp object. This will damage the way the spray works.
