    Had problems with PLA sticking to Kapton taped bed

    Had problems with PLA sticking to Kapton taped bed until someone told me to use an alcohol wipe before each print while bed was heating up.

    Was too lazy to go to the store to get some alcohol, so looked in the cabinet and grabbed a 25 year old bottle of Old Mr. Boston Blackberry Brandy.......

    Works like a charm!

    This week I'll go to the store to get some real alcohol to see which works better.

    I guess the natural sugars in the beverage will help better than just alcohol

    Or you can use any cheap hairspray, will be probably much better than alcohols...
