I know this question is a little old... but I had the same problem and I figured it out! Unscrew the red top to the bottle. Under the top there is a gasket (leave that alone) and a little clear plastic plug blocking an air hole. Pull the little plug out and put it back in the holder. (Be careful, liquid will come out of the hole). This allows for air and cleaner to flow through.. so viola! It's spraying! I was so mad when it didn't work (brand new). I wish it had come with this little tip on the packaging! Have fun! :)

Found BURRED in the Internet!

"Lime (any form) - Whether you're storing the round pearls of dolomite lime or powdered hydrated lime, the most important thing is that they must stay dry. Store the bags up off the floor to avoid the rising dampness that's common in some areas in winter. Or better yet, use the lime as needed on your garden in the fall and give it time to work in over the winter - then no storage is necessary.
I should mention that many of these products are applied with sprayers and other equipment. We use one sprayer for oil based products and one for non-oil based. Some people use a different one for each product, and that's fine too. My advice would be to make sure that at the end of the season you thoroughly clean your equipment and store it in a dry location. I've found that indoor storage works best because it stops any minute traces of oil from becoming gummy over the winter. There's nothing more frustrating than having a beautiful winter's day on which to spray dormant oil on your trees and then finding your sprayer is gummed up and useless."

PERHAPS a more 'Friendly' approach is: diatomaceous earth ? Low cost, effective and abundant!


A off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as bed bugs, ants or fleas) it compromises their waxy coating so that their innards turn into teeny tiny bug jerky. But it doesn't hurt mammals. We can eat it. We do eat it! It's in lots of grain based foods because lots of grains are stored with diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs from eating the grain!

I'm not a carpenter, but you could get a piece of wood an one by four and drill a hole in the wood and adhere it to the shed on both ends and each shelve for support.

Hi, I would use 3/4" plywood and build a Horseshoe type structure at the desired height then place it on a lower shelf, place another shelf on top of it.

good luck
