I always like to keep a can of "Great Stuff" on hand, in case I have
an uninvited guess appear in one of the buildings (as in mouse). Mice
are common on farms (which this is). If I find the point of entry at
1:00am, I want to plug the hole NOW, not tomorrow.
I had a can on the shelf and was doing some work in my tool shed. It
was cold outside and I felt a draft. Thats when I found there was an
leak right below the eaves. I go and get my can of "Great Stuff" from
the house and prepare to fill that crack. However, the can does not
work. No matter how hard I push the trigger, nothing comes out. I
remove the nozzle, and try to poke a piece of wire into the spout.
Put the nozzle back on the can and still nothing comes out. (Yes, this
is a brand new can). Once again, I try and this time the can's spout
It's 11pm so no stores are open, so I'm screwed till the next day.
When I got in the house, I decided to email the manufacturer, "Dow
Chemical Co.". I go to the website on the can, www.dowgreatstuff.com
and send an email. Nearly a week later, I get this reply:
"Dear (my name),
Thank you for contacting The Dow Chemical Company.
