Default stupid question.. how do you unclog windshield washer nozzles??

i waxed my car last week..
last night i had to clean my windshield... 2 jets (out of 4) were clogged with dried wax..
i tried to use a pin, but it looks like i pushed the wax in further.

Default Push the pin in the one that isn't clogged and get someone to run it...

might just blow ou the clog.

Default Here is what i succesfully use.....

A sewing needle. U stick it into the clogged holes move it in and out few times, leave it in the hole for aiming purpose (by taking aim using the other end of the needle that stick out as an aiming direction to the windshield). U may need some trial and error to get it pointed right. Oh, another tip; aim just abit higher than your preferred the position to offset with the wind effect when your car is running. Hope this heip.....
