Rear wash-wipe not working

Like a naughty boy I carried on too long when the alert came up on the dash to say I was low on washer fluid.
Having refilled and put in some of the Porsche window cleaner fluid (two caps-worth for the cold!) I find that the rear wash is not working, no water is getting to the rear screen.
Any ideas how to correct?

You either have an airlock or have picked some gunk up from the bottom of the reservoir that's blocking the hose or jet. 
Try removing the washer hose and blowing through the jet. If that fails, try blowing through the hose.
If all this is physically too much for you, get Carole to do it (or you may need an airline!)
