Please note: Washing new blankets thoroughly; and washing blankets with warm water as well as solvent and water then drying it is a good habit. Keeping an eye on the cylinder pressure is a good thing. Always use recommended blanket washes. And keep absorption to minimum by drying blanket after each application. And if you encounter things like hickey issues, once again, blanket and ink rollers must be kept clean and free from glaze. If pores are kept open, then hickies can be reduced.
