    George attempts to re-pressurize a flat can of contact cleaner. Will it work?

    Only problem I see is if you don't refill it from a dry source of air you end up with a can full of compressed moisture.
    Do you really want to be shooting this into your electronics?

    Why be a lightweight, charge it with propane and impress your friends.

    And when the can blows up the eye protection will be the least of your worries.

    Golly, what could possibly go wrong? Make sure someone holds your beer before you do it.

    Oxygen and moisture in the recharge air will contribute to degrading the can contents, depending on what it is. Also they will corrode the inside of the steel can over time, adding corrosion products to the contents.

    I could only see doing this in an emergency if there were no other way to obtain the product or a substitute, and the need was critical and urgent. I would use only enough pressure to expel the contents, not 95 psi, and would replace the can as soon as possible.

    If you have access to dry nitrogen your really good to go. Pressure is the other side of it though. I would think 1o psi would be fine. Really though if your that hard up for two ounces of anything it might be time for a plan.

    If you have access to dry nitrogen, what are you doing wasting your time with a can of air?
