olive oil & gocco

Olive oil is magical. Tonight I found out that instead of wasting money buying expensive gocco screen cleaner, I can just use olive oil. It seriously works just as well, probably better. Many months ago someone suggested this online and it sounded to weird to me. I wish I could remember who/where this suggestion came from so I could thank them but I just don't remember. If it was you: thank you!! You've saved me time, money and screens.

Do you mean, clean the screen with olive oil? Not sure I read this right. If so, what an idea..but won't try it till I know for sure that is what you meant..

YES! Instead of using the gocco screen cleaning goop you can buy by the tube, you can use olive oil.

It WORKS. I just scraped off all of the ink that I could, saturated a paper towel with oil, and wiped the ink away. It seemed to work even better than the solution I usually buy, and is a fraction of the cost. I assure you that it worked - I printed some cards immediately afterwards and they came out perfectly!
