How to repair a pump spray bottle -- pop the diffuser disc back into the nozzle

I have a plastic column-nozzle spray bottle that I use to spray alcohol on things I want to clean, such as glasses and phone screens.

I dropped it on the hardwood floor from desk height.  After that, it started splurting instead of misting.  This made it much less effective at cleaning.

I looked into the nozzle and could see deep inside of it.  Previously the nozzle had a milky translucent disc covering the opening.

I looked around on the floor and found the milky translucent plastic cylinder.  I gently hammered the cylinder back into the nozzle.  Fixed!  It mists instead of splurting.

My Googling failed to find this fix, so I wrote it up.  I expect my Nobel prize any day.
