Atomizer Fill the cup nearly full of water by dipping it into the pail. Hold the cup level with one hand, and - with the fingers of the same hand - hold a half straw vertically so that its bottom end is immersed in the water and its top end is about 1.5 inches above the water’s surface. Using your other hand, hold another half straw to your lips so that you can blow through it.
