    I have a trigger/spray bottle on hand with turps in it for all kinds of tasks and what I do is turn the nozzle to "jet" and hold the spray can nozzle inlet hard up against the spray bottle and pump until a clear jet of turps comes out. Usually just one or two squirts are needed.

    If i get a blocked can, more than just the nozzle, sometimes remove the nozzle and inverting the can into solvent (ive used thinners) will clear it. Press the tube into the bottom of the container.
    (ps, don't use the can lid - they are vented...)

    Another way to clean up just used nozzles is to just blow them clear with compressed air.
