white spots

Hello friends,

I've been printing a few cabinets and every now and then, even though I clean the base with soap and water, I run into these kinds of white spots. Someone else happens? Any advice to fix it?

Best regards!

It looks like glue residue to me.  I see it occasionally.  I assume this is the face that contacts the build plate.  It appears to be something on the plate that is causing it.

@jsw

I don't think that's it, in fact I even cleaned the base before printing.

Does the white stuff wash away or is it in the print?

Wash bed with dish soap a few times, and  use nothing else, then print again, is it gone?

Could be if you switch filament it leaves something behind, or only alcohol it does not clean all.(this is how alcohol cleans).

Also it could be something in the filament, test a different brand.

I'm going to try the tips that are happening to me and then I leave you a photo, I think I should wash with detergent and water after each impression, it may be because of the filament.
