I've screenprinted only a couple times, and when I go to clean the screen, following the directions that came with the kit, it gets most of the ink/paint off (i've been using acrylic) but still leaves an outline of what I've just done. It doesn't seem to affect future printings (if I create a different design, I the previous design isn't printed), but it's distracting and hard to make other designs. It's almost like a stain. Is there any way to get rid of this? The book says to use Windex if the paint's dried and I tried that briefly but it only removed the stain a little. I didn't make the screen so I don't know what the fabric is--it came from a speedball screenprinting kit.
