-[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. 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 may help you clear these clogs. For really hard to clean clogs, a ultrasonic cleaner may help, if you own one.
+[title] Clean the printhead
+[* icon_caution] Alcohol should only be used as a last resort. This can damage the seals on the printhead if it is not fully dried and alcohol is left to sit. The best way to do this is to purge the head when you are done ***THREE times*** without alcohol.
[* 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.***
+[* icon_note] As the head clears and you change water, the water will get lighter as you clean the printhead. If this does not happen quickly, the printhead is heavily clogged. ***Tip: If you are having problems with a stubborn clog, a ultrasonic cleaner or small paintbrush may break these clogs down.***
+[* black] Pour some hot water into a bowl and let the printhead sit and cycle the water as it starts to get dark. Once you think the printhead is clean, pull the printhead from the water. Quickly wipe down the electrical contacts and printhead nozzles.
+[* black] Let the printhead sit in the open for a few hours. This will allow the rest of the water on the printhead to dry, which may cause problems if reinstalled wet. Reinstall the printhead into the printer once it is dry.
