I have found that the Mariposa sealant that I used comes easily off the tire by holding under hot running water and rubbing it by hand. It took me about 5 min per tire.

The middle of the rim is also easy to clean its the rim under the hook that's a big hassle

Stan's has ammonia in it, which will corrode aluminum rims and spoke nipples.

I had to have two wheels rebuilt with brass nipples because of this.

I've never had any problems with Orange Seal.

I'm unconvinced there is any advantage to road tubeless, unless you live in goathead territory.
