Hi Cathy,  

If you're looking to save some money, I've heard that some techs use cut
up phone book pages.  I've never done it, but I hear it works great. 

I've also seen more than one person use that plastic, cellophane wrap
that you find when you open a new box of slides.  They don't use it just
once,  it is kept on the edge of their waterbath and used many times
over before being discarded and starting with a new piece.  I've done
this once or twice, it seem like the paraffin loves sticking to the
stuff...like static cling or something.....

I hope you find something that works well.

Just looking to see what various people use to clean the debris off
their water baths while cutting. We use kimwipes. Anything better?
