It seems to me you mentioned this a while back. Jerry>> ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++= Sure thing I have used pure Windex both in my 1520's and 600. Now I used the windex not so much to purge but to clean out clogs. I use a pure windex cleaning about every 2 to 3 months to make sure I keep the gunk buildup to as little as possible. I do a lot of printing I use about 1/2 gallon of bulk ink a month. Hey so far this has worked for me! Be very careful about purges. the ink formulations may not be compadible. I can not say that the windex will wotk with other inks but it sure works with Epson OEM inks and American ink Jet corp inks. I would say that if all you want to do is purge between ink check with the ink formulator to see if the Windex is a no no. Just plain old distilled water or alcohol also works well to purge. The big reason to use windex is the cleaning action it has for gunk and clogs. TomCat Interactive Imagery - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
