Cleaning my bed Ender 3

I am using Isopropanl to clean my bed but it doesnt get the residue off completely?

I am not sure what most people use but I use Windex to clean the bed and 99% pure Isopropyl to remove any Windex residue. Isopropyl is not a cleaner like most people think but it is amazing at removing the cleaning fluid residue etc. Try Windex first and then alcohol. I do this with my PEI bed now since I got the printer and rarely have adhesion issues. I clean and then alcohol before every print.


Haven’t heard of using Windex as well as IPA. Gonna have to try that. Thanks!

Sounds interesting,

Usually I just use IPA and some elbow grease but this does sound like it could work a lot better!


As others have said, windex works great, but i usually just use plain water and detergent to clean PEI or glass beds. Works really well too.

Any cleaning solution that works is great, the alcohol is the final wipe just to remove the cleaning fluid residue.

My PEI Bed has about 4 months of steady use and still looks like the day it came out of the box.

Yeah I have some multi-year old PEI sheets and if you made me choose which one was new and which one was old I would have absolutely no Idea!

Very cool
I look forward to mine still looking new in my multi year future.
