I am wondering what would be the proper word or an idiom corresponding to the following:
You are trying to squeeze out some hand soap or hand sanitizer from a push down bottle, like this:
But because the nozzle is dried out, the liquid instead of coming down on your hand, shoots straight, for example hitting your face or clothes.
It happened recently at a meeting I attended, and I could not find proper words to explain it to another person. Squirt comes to mind, but I wonder if there is a better word or expression for it emphasizing that the dispenser did not work as intended.
