    I was attempting to pull out an exposed sheet to process later and do an image transfer but I messed it up and got goo all over the roller. I didn't have anything to clean it up with and now it's dried on.
    What is the proper way to clean this?

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    I use alcohol wipes. Won't cause rust and seems to get the caustic goo off quite well. Always good to have a few around in your bag BTW.

    Q-tips and solvent if it isn't too bad. The complete strip down is a pain the butt - for professional work it pays to have two of the bloody things for when this happens.
