Miracle Print Adhesion Method #2
by grabercars, published
After not having access to any usable http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:28787, and having some major problems with skin grease on the print bed, we were looking for something to clean it up. What we found ended up making prints stick so well that for large prints we sometimes had to replace the ripped-up tape. For smaller prints it works like a dream.

Put a cotton ball or some folded up paper towel (Tissue paper or toilet paper just fall apart) and apply some polish remover. Wipe over your preexisting blue-tape bed once or twice, and print! Voila, sticky, sticky bed.
Warning: Do NOT use denatured alcohol or stronger dilutions of acetone. If you apply anything with a higher concentration than nail polish remover, you will NEVER get the tape off of the bottom of your print!
Major ingredients (For comparison): Acetone, water, propylene carbonate, dimethyl glutarate, dimethyl succinate, dimethyl adipate, glycerine, and gelatin. The rest are fragrances/colors.
