You can keep it in the fridge for a couple of days with the ink still on it…. just take it out about 30 minutes before you print to let it warm up a bit.  You can also keep it in the freezer for longer periods of time, but i’ve never tried it.  It is possible to clean the screen with gocco cleaner/GOOP & a tissue, but if you rub to hard you can create really annoying pinholes that leak when you re-ink (they can be closed up with nail polish though)    Hope that helps!

wrap the screens in tin foil and put them in the freezer. I’ve waited a few weeks before re using them- you just have to make sure before you freeze them that you remove as much ink as you can (save the ink, too!). Like tater said, you just take the screens out of the freezer before attempting to use them again and a hairdryer works to loosen up any ink that may be left on the screen. Clean the screen with a tiny amount of cleaner, and reapply the ink blocking strips. Should be fine from there!

THe Gocco cleaning stuff that came with the Gocco doesn’t really work very well, so i bought the cleaning stuff that is on Norwood Studio (i think that’s the name) site because they say it cleans a lot better. I haven’t tried it yet, but people have raved that it works.

I have used "goo gone" to clean screens, I don’t think it’s recommended, but it works pretty good.

 

I’ve never re-used a screen tho. But I do keep extra scraped ink in the fridge.
