Hi, Dee. I am sorry you are having difficulties getting the gel out of the can for the fifth time. I am sure this is quite frustrating for you. I want you to know that we have strict controls to check the quality of our products throughout the manufacturing process, so they should reach you in the best possible condition. If you haven't already, try pressing down on the spray top a few times to reactivate the spray. Unlike other spray cans you may have used it is important with these cans to make sure you are holding the can upright and at a slight angle. We would like to hear more about your experiences, so please call us at (800) 445-5388, M-F, 9 am to 6 pm, EST. We are here to help.
