Sink the Ink is a semi-viscous, water soluble cleaner. It is designed for the removal of a variety of inks without attacking the emulsion. Sink the Ink works best with plastisol and water based inks.


  1. Card excessive ink from the screen.
  2. Apply Sink the Ink to the ink side of the screen.
  3. Use a non-abrasive scrub brush or pad to agitate both sides of the screen.
  4. Starting at the top of the screen, high pressure water rinse all ink residue from the screen. (For saving the artwork (stencil), use above application, but use a low-pressure flood rinse in place of a high pressure rinse.)

*Check with your local sanitation regulations regarding limitations on inks that are to be rinsed before washing them into drain.
