Your prints look kinda crappy, try using less flow, or try using a lower heat.

I hope I helped you with this.

I made this thing over 4.5 years ago with my first DIY 3D Printer. Now it looks different ;)

Doesn't the sponge leave particles on the filament?

I use simple dishwashing sponges, they don't leave residues on the fillament
