Idea Exchange: Unplug applicators with a dental tool

Our Doxirobe gel (Pfizer Animal Health) needle applicators kept getting plugged when we administered the gel over several days. But then I discovered a way to unplug them. With the dental machine turned on, I put the tip of the air-water handpiece into the applicator and sprayed air through it. The gel sprayed out both ends, and the applicator was completely clean and ready to use again.
