[title] Cleaning the printhead
-[* black] Pour water in the bowl, and place the printhead in the bowl and allow it to soak. Allow time for the water to dissolve ink deposits in the printhead. If the head has a deep clog, use of a brush and alcohol will help. If you have an ultrasonic cleaner, you can use this mix to speed the process up. Use of distilled water is recommended, if possible.
-[* icon_reminder] Periodically move the print head in the bowl to help dissolve ink deposits and change the water as you go. Do this until the water is clear. ***Dry the head before you reinstall it in the printer, and if you want to do so let it sit near a warm spot to speed the drying process up. Since you did flush the ink, this should be fine.***
-[* 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. Do not use it because you can. It can damage the printhead so you also need to flush it with clean water if you have to. Using it because you can may do more harm then good. It should be purged 5 times, ideally.
-[* icon_note] The maximum soaking times before you move the head should be as follows: ***No alcohol: 30-40 minutes*** ***Alcohol and water mix: 10-20 minutes*** The reason for the shorter timeframe with alcohol is it simply does not need the soaking time plain water needs. As the head soaks, the color of the water is going to gradually get lighter too.
+[* 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.
