I’ve done it and it’s kind of a pain.  I scraped off as much ink as I could and then used the cleaner that comes with the gocco.  I read somewhere to use an old phone book under the screen and just rub (but not too hard) with paper towels which worked ok.  I just ordered some gocco grrl cleaner from northwood studios because I heard it worked better.  Definitely too much of a pain to do for every screen but if you might use it again I think it’s worth a try.

I’ve also had luck with just wrapping the whole thing (ink and all) in foil and sticking it in the fridge.  After letting it warm up it was as good as new- about a week later.

I tried cleaning mine, too, and BOY I will never, ever do it again.  It’s a pain. and I ended up with ink everywhere.  I’ve just wrapped them (ink and all) in saran wrap and foil and stuck them in a ziploc freezer bag (yes, I am that anal) and put them in the freezer and reused them successfully (after letting it thaw and warm up, of course).  Obviously, this might be a problem if you plan on using a different color than you did the first time, but if not, meh.  Just throw it in the freezer.

It’s worth trying once.  You might not find it as annoying as I did.
