I always clean the plates with soap and water then dry them. Then I clean
with windex and scrape with a razor blade. Then I clean with EtOH and
scrape with a razor blade and dry with kimWipe. Then I put a dab of
sigmacoat on a wadded up kimwipe and gently rub on one plate. Then I clamp
the plates and pour. I've never had a problem.
