The evaporation of single droplets and sprays into gaseous atmosphere and the evaporation of sessile liquid droplets on solid substrates are here considered. We argue that if thermodynamics is augmented with Derjaguin's (disjoining/conjoining) pressure to handle phenomena in a vicinity of the three-phase contact line, problems like the singularity of the evaporation flux and of the viscous stress at the three-phase contact line of a sessile droplet are ruled out.
