Useless product, would not recommend

Comments about AWT Safe-T-Wash Screen Wash-Up:
I purchased this product thinking it would remove the ink/ghost images from my screens because the description clearly states "A special blend of cleaning solutions that meet standards for safe and effective cleaning of all inks used in the screen printing process."The product arrived dented and the lid could not be removed without significant force. I looked for directions on the label for insight on the best way to use and dispose of this product. The directions on the label tell you to visit the manufacturer website for information on the proper use of this product. However, when visiting the manufacture website I found no information on how to properly use this product other than the fact it should be used on a screen and it removes ink. There are no instructions on how long the product should be applied to the screen or how to properly use this product.So with little product information provided by the manufacturer I thought I would treat this product like all of the other emulsion/ ink removers I have used in the past. I generously coated my screen with the product let it sit for a 2-3 minutes and then tried to wash off my screen with a power washer. The ink and emulsion remained fixed on the screen. Second attempt, I let the product sit a little longer on the screen 5-8 minutes, attempted to wash it out. NOTHING CAME OFF THE SCREEN. The recent ink applications and ghost haze on the screens were cemented on the screen but the emulsion was partially removed. After several more attempts, refusing to accept defeat, I realized for the life of me I can not figure out the purpose of this product and I have been a screen printer for 5 years. It seems to remove emulsion but very poorly. Worried that my screens are being damaged by this product I have had to purchase a different effective ink/ghost remover from a different company.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
