i burned my screen yesterday, but when i washed it out, the emulsion didnt turn out right, so i tried to reclaim it... but its not coming off!! a majority of it has already washed right out of the screen when i put on the chemical remover, but there are certain areas where it isnt coming off at all! it might have been because i used old emulsion (10 months old =X). im freaking out because i this is my nicest screen! can anyone please help me? ive used bleach and the chemical remover already. Sad

once you let the emulsion remover dry in the screen, it is almost impossible to get the emulsion out. most instructions on the emulsion remover say something to this effect. you could try to use emulsion remover again and just keep scrubbing it with a scrub brush, but it might take a half hour or more before it all comes out. so your best option is going to be pressure washing it out. Only pressure wash your screens if they are very durable- they have to withstand the washing, and the tighter the mesh the easier it will come out. You can go to a coin operated car wash place (where you wash your car yourself, not the automated ones) and use the high power plain water setting if you don't have access to a pressure washer around the house. Try not to get pneumonia though.
