So before you print eye-center your sticker and then put the acetate on top and make sure it's in place.

And now thatll make cleaning a lot easier.

Make sure the top is clean then there should be a bit at the bottom of the screen that you can clean up with another block of paper towel with solvent and apply a bit of pressure to get the ink off. After that get some piece of cloth (a sock in the picture haha) and wash off more left over ink until its done and then you can just wash it with water to get the solvent off.
