Lanocote thinner?

I have a spray bottle of Lanocote that I have not used. It has been on the boat for three years. It must be well sealed because the plastic bottle is partially imploded because solvent has been lost over time. It does not spray. Any suggestions for a solvent I can add back to thin the stuff out so it can be sprayed?

If it won't spray it is probably bad. For $10.00 i would just replace it.

Lanolin is water soluble, but if you check the MSDS or call the company, you can find out what solvent they preferred. Could be alcohol or naphtha, easiest to find out what they used and match it.
