I use 3M spray adhesive; expensive, but good. Be sure to turn upside down when done and clear the nozzle by spraying a few seconds until spray clears up (no adhesive coming out anymore).....................doc

I use Doc's method. Fast, easy and durable.

For spray can nozzles I take them off and put them into a small jar of acetone. An old plastic film container works too but has limited space.

Paint or glue doesn't harden and no pressure is lost to cleaning.
