Ink Cartridge Cleaning

I ran across this idea while sitting idol ,ready to fall a sleep on the couch last night. I put my dried up nozzled cartridge in my wife's jewelry cleaner, in a 1/4 of water , and set it for 3 minutes. I be darned if the thing didn't work perfect after running one page threw the printer. Wish I had thought of this many cartridges ago. May help someone that already has a cleaner.

We switched to 100% laserjet printers, two black and white and one color printer. The color printer can sit for weeks or even months and no worries about the heads clogging. Also a lot cheaper per page and I can use any paper I want to use.

For pictures it is cheaper to upload the file to a lab or to Costco and have them print it on photo paper which is a lot more durable than inkjet prints.

Or, are you in your own version of "Hot Water"???

Great idea, by the way!
