If you've ever run your laser at low speed and high power, you've seen the results - sticky sap and varnish covering the areas you've already engraved. We wanted to share a product we've found that quickly cleans up all of that extra residue, leaving a clean, crisp engraving.
Using a common and easily accessible hand soap, we'll show you how to quickly and easily remove wood residue from any project. Additionally, the product we're using for this project is a biodegradable, waterless, petroleum solvent-free hand cleaner that contains neither harsh chemicals, mineral oils nor ammonia.
