Double barrel aerosol spray

Two is better
  [vote for,

A trigger-type holder that can hold two aerosol cans, for example one of insecticide and one of air freshener, and select between them with a thumb lever.

       Opening the door to an arms race - yours is kind of a double barreled shotgun, so the revolver and semiautomatic would follow.

       I think you misconstrue "for example" as "in practice".

       It could also be used for two different colours of spray paint.

       Those of us who manage to keep two hands free find that bimanual aerosol use is not challenging.

       Yes, but that requires putting down the can of Carlsberg Special Brew. Even temporarily, considerable psychological stress results.

       Two pot, spidery stuff .... for giving criminals time to take look at themselves?

       T & C Stoffs would be my educated guess.
FlyingToaster, Oct 27 2017

       I actually thought of this once for two colors of spray paint so you could mix them and even vary the mixture in real time by pushing the spray button to the left or right.   

       I realized there was absolutely no reason to do that though therefore nobody would ever buy it and I dropped the idea. I do that a lot.   

       Although I guess you could paint something from left to right and have it fade from one color to the other.   

       Hmm. Maybe it wasn't such a bad idea.   

       Mmmm, naaa.

       ethanol and n2o4 would be optimum, but it's not hypergolic.
FlyingToaster, Oct 28 2017

       If it's not hypergolic, it's not optimum.

       so what's hypergolic with c2h5oh ?

       If [8th] were a rabbi, would he build a hypergolem? As an HB idea, it would be mfd-pun, but I'm picturing a sort of ceramic android suicide bomb. Could that be made to work?

       We don't know, until we try it ... we'll tell you how it turns out.
