    Default Anyone use dishwashing soap as a degreaser?

    LOL! Just wondering. It's cheap.

    Yup. Always have done. If it can get baked-on pig fat off of an oven dish, it can do this job just fine...

    If I use a degreaser it's only before the very first coat.

    for reclaiming? yeah, after the emulsion is removed, powerwash, scrub with dishsoap, spray down again with water.
    most of the time we never fish!

    I've found, at least with our setup, degreasing is not needed. I so so improvement between a degreased screen and an undegreased screen.

    Side note: has anyone ever tried printing with liquid soaps?
    There's one that I use that is a really sweet transparent red, and I always think it would be sweet if I could find an ink that color. I assume that after a couple of passes it might get too sudsy, but on the plus side if it dries in the screen it would wash right out, and the prints would smell terrific.
