Thank you in advance, this is probably a question asked and answered a thousand times over, but I could not find it. What is the best way of cleaning font, I have a horsetail brush to brush over the font, but what do you use to get old ink off or just used font? Thanks

Use mineral spirits and a cloth rag on wood type. If it’s a metal font use a very soft toothbrush.

Thank you very much for the help.

Usually a cloth rag will remove and ink from metal type, however, if you have old ink built up in counters then use the soft toothbrush.
