    I've made a cool discovery to share with the community. This past week I've been printing 24 2"x 1" mdel rockets that can be launched with drinking straws (part of an engineering class project). I ran out of my usual bottle of rubbing alcohol, and asked ot borrow some form the school nurse. She handed me a box of Curad Prep Pads, little packaged wipes with 90% alcohol, 200 to a box for $3.

    They work great, clean the blue tape easily and I can get 5-6 prints per cleaning and don't end up with overly soaked paper towels or waiting for alcohol to dry on the tape.

    Yes they're very handy. Just make sure to wipe as soon as you open them up because those pads dry up really fast.
