How do you clean a foam dispensing gun?

To clean the inside, attach the gun cleaner like you would any other foam can. Pull the trigger on your gun and shoot out foam into a trash container until it comes out clean. Wait 10-15 minutes and repeat this process, as sometimes the Acetone needs time to work to dissolve the foam. Don't over clean the gun.
