    Default Bathtub Washout

    How many of you folks use your bathtub to clean / washout screens?
    I'd really like to get some printing done at my place but I can't figure out how to do the washout.

    Any problems, tumors, blindness...? I imagine cleaning the tub would be a nightmare.

    I use my tub, but i dont take bathes, just showers, but my feet are fine. Also my fiance is very mad, because the ink stains, and the corners scrape, and make the tub ugly. if you live with a female, youve been warned

    just rub the bathtub with a sponge and comet/ajax immediately after you wash the screens.... the ink should rinse off easily.

    I use the tub too. No problems here, except its a little loud. My girlfriend has no problem with it because I scrub the tub afterwards, it's spic and span every weekend.

    I thought the TUB DUMPER thread was revived.

    Just wrap the curtains up over the bar. No more mess.
