We clean our molds once a week. Soak them in Xylene to remove paraffin, soak in 100% alcohol to remove xylene, rinse in running water, dry and spray with mold release solution.

OK folks, I know I should be smarter than this and I haven't seen discussion on it lately....
Are people cleaning their metal embedding molds after evey embedding session?
If not, how often do you clean them?
Do you clean them at all?
If you clean them, how do you do it?
