Frickin' Clogged Windshield Washer Sprayers

I've removed my clogged windshield sprayers, soaked them in CLR and jammed wires and paper clips into them and they are still clogged. There seems to be a valve in them that prevents the washer fluid from siphoning back out of them. I managed to get one of them pretty clear (I must have damaged the valve) but I worked on the other one for over an hour and I can't blow air through them in either direction. I'm ready to get out the drill and ream it out.

Any ideas?

Yeah, I was thinking of doing that. Thanks for the link.

Is there any maintenance we can do to prevent them from not working? Just use them, or what?

I'm here to serve.

For those interested using hondapartsunlimited, I've had nothing but good service from them. But do expect a short wait. They don't stock most S2000 parts so you have to wait for them to get the parts from Honda. I find on average that it takes nearly a week for them to ship your order. But I think you'll find that at most sources. I tried another online store(hondaautomotiveparts.com) and had to wait even longer! It was TWO weeks before they shipped my order! And I wasn't ordering rare parts or anything, just nuts/bolts for the rear suspenion and subframe. So I switched back to using hondapartsunlimited. You can call them and order over the phone as well. They seem like really good guys.
