I have tried cleaning the screens with ink remover and the emuslion remover and their is still a ghosting on the screens. some blue and I didn't print with blue. I am using graphic HU emulsion and plastisol inks. Does anyone know if I can use the screens as is or do I have to get something to clean them more? any sugestions would be a great help. thanks for looking if you have none

If you hold the screen up to the light and look through the mesh and can see through it/looks translucent then it will work just fine.

haze remover will certainly get rid of it almost immediately.

Meanwhile-the local Dollar Tree here sells a product called (I think) AWESOME-it is a concentgrated cleaner/degreaser.

It works too-but you gotta use the ol scrub brush for a few minutes where the dehazer works a little quicker.

But the screen can certainly be used as is. It does matter a little more on higher mesh counts-but still not a show stopper.

that stuff is awesome. It cleans almost anything and is great for those grease spots on the driveway and hard water stains in the house

Just looking back at my old post and suprised to see how many positives responses there were to this stuff.

Yes, I was suprised that it worked too since it is so less expensive than, well everything else.

We started using it when I was out of degreaser-then I noticed it got the ink off of the wood parts of the screen really good.

We not use it for a lot of stuff in the shop.

We had always used it at home-but was really suprised.

I wonder what other short cuts and tricks we are missing?

Haze remover is bleach and Liquid Drano.

My daughter had her chemistry class at the college do a chemical breakdown on it.

I'm definitely open for any shortcuts.

I got paint sticks from my bumper to bumper auto parts store. I got 1000 for $32 with tax.

I have a question for those that use awesome cleaner. Are you diluting it or using it straight out of the spray bottle. I just picked up a bottle to test and there are different mixture ratios on the instructions.
