Reader Rodney sent us a link to this simple “straw holder” for spray cans, called “Hold-It.” As you can see in the picture, it’s designed for stuff like WD-40 which comes with a little stray that you almost inevitably lose.
Personally, I always remove the straw and re-tape it to the side of the can. While this works for me, though, I’d imagine that if you used the can more regularly, that’d be a pain in the ass.
The manufacturer sells ’em online for $5 (+$3 shipping) for an envelope of 12 and $20 (+$3 shipping) for an envelope for 50. Right now they’ll also give you 5 free for an order of 50. The site also says you can get ’em at O’Reilly Auto Parts and one Ace Hardware distributor in Bozeman, MT.
