What do I use to clean BuildTak?

Postby Vagulus » Thu Sep 05, 2019 3:51 am

Over time I am getting a buildup of Building Surface Adhesive (I use 3DLAC Plus) on the BuildTak in my Pro2.
I wipe the surface regularly with a damp (water) sponge but I don't think that gets it truly clean.
What should I use to wash it off?

I always use alcohol. This is a solvent to most bed adhesion surface prep materials because they are PVA (the A is for Alcohol).

I thought PVA stood for Polyvinyl Acetate. That's water soluble.
