[title] Cleaning the printhead
-[* black] Pour some of the hot water into your bowl, and let the printhead sit. You should leave this for a little bit, to allow the water to dissolve as much ink as possible. Change the water out as you go as well, and do this semi frequently. Only stop doing this when the water is reasonably or completely clear. ***Note: Distilled water is recommended.***
-[* icon_note] If you are dealing with a heavy clog, you may be able to loosen the ink with a small intact paintbrush. If this does not work, try using a small ultrasonic cleaner, if you have one available. Alcohol may help, but treat this as a last resort.
-[* icon_caution] Alcohol should only be used for situations where globs of ink come out of the printhead that do not flow easily, even with hot water. If you have to go this far, be prepared to flush the printhead again to clear the alcohol. I would recommend purging it ***three additonal times*** if alcohol is used.
-[* icon_note] The maximum soaking times before changing water are as follows: If Alcohol is used, the head should only be soaked for ***10-20 minutes***. If alcohol is not used, the maximum time is ***30-40 minutes***.
-[* icon_note] As the head clears and you change water, the color of the water should get progressively lighter. If it does not do this quickly, the head is heavily clogged with ink.
+[* black] Pour some of the hot water into your bowl, and let the printhead sit. You should leave this for a little bit, to allow the water to dissolve as much ink as possible. As the water gets dark or cools dark, change the water. Once the water is reasonably clear, remove the printhead and let the printhead dry. ***Note: Distilled water is recommended.***
+[* icon_note] As the head clears and you change water, the color of the water should get progressively lighter. If it does not do this quickly, the head is heavily clogged with ink. A small paintbrush with intact bristles will likely help you clear the clog if this is the case. For really hard to clean clogs, a ultrasonic cleaner may help, if you own one.
+[* icon_note] Maximum recommended water circulation times: ***With alcohol: ~10 minutes maximum***. ***Without alcohol: ~15 minutes maximum***.
+[* icon_caution] Alcohol should only be used as a last resort. This can damage the seals on the printhead, if it isn't sufficiently purged from the printhead. ***To purge any alcohol used, run the head through hot water at least 3 times.***
