    Which optics cleaning cloth do you use?
    AND
    How to make a platen glass more slippery?
    Thank you again for your input!

    We use Wypall good strong for optics & general cleaning.

    Same here ... I just call it washer solvent. The formula that I've come up with is:
    2 gal -10F washer solvent
    3 qts vinegar scented Windex
    1 qt Cleaning Vinegar

    Here in Michigan, it's important that your glass cleaner isn't frozen solid when you show up to your first call. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Yes, I'm in New York. I add a little isopropyl alcohol to my window cleaner during the winter.

    Re: optics cleaning cloth + platen glass slippery product

    In the absence of the Photex cleaning cloth, i used a microfiber cloth for test.
    After this rather wet cleaning i used the Chicopee towel to rub dry (and take away ozone remainder)
    I'm very satisfied of this result.
    Never before I had a mirror so clean; the reflected light is really powerful!

    Re: optics cleaning cloth + platen glass slippery product

    To ameliorate the sliding of the original on the platen glass I have put some oil on it and spread it with a cloth ...
    works fine, but I hope the oil-smell will disappear soon.
    I have putted to much vinegar in my selfmade glass cleaner, so taking away the sliding characteristic...

    Brillianize and a lint free paper towel or microfiber - use it for all sorts of things.
    Good stuff

    Next time use silicon fusing unit oil.

    Use olive oil and red-wine vinegar...add salt and pepper for a light lunch condiment!
