Being a fountain pen addict – I clean my pens and re-ink them on a regular basis.
DISCLAIMER: cold water is sufficient for cleaning fountain pens, no solution at all is required
There are some pens I can’t help, so this is where cleaning solution comes in handy.
The pen I have used for the review has a gorgeous see-through nib, but it comes at a price. Some inks may stain your pen. Vintage pens or pens which haven’t been cleaned in a while will need a little bit more then just cold water.
Here is what happened in five minutes.
Solution has done a terrific job. Feed remains stained, but it looks hundred times better and brighter. Ink flow has increased tremendously. This pen always had a little bit of an attitude and was very dry. I can now report that it writes wet wet wet. I’m tempted to keep the feed in the solution over night.
One last thing – the solution smells of orange zest ❤
