    I've been using the hairspray on the bed now for a couple weeks since I got the printer. It has developed a nice buildup on the print bed.

    What do you guys recommend as far as cleaning that off the easiest? Cleaning product recommendations?

    Thanks

    Actually just came across this (I had searched the forums but not youtube). I'd still like to know what you guys recommend.

    Like Geof, but I'm cheap :) I use WallyWorld house brand window cleaner and AquaNet extra Superhold with paper towels. That's for PLA.

    Abs, i use acetone wipes, 99% rubbing alcohol, then window cleaner and hairspray.

    Do you guys recommend cleaning after every print? Or just when I change to a different type of filament?

    If you would like to never have to clean your glass bed again and not have to use hairspray, glue sticks, tape, or even worry about your prints warping or coming off while printing check out this site:

    I bought their build plate and it works fantastic.
