So, my Boheme with the OB nib has shipped from Pentooling! And there is one thing that I still am not clear on with the Boheme, which is cleaning. There are lots of great instructions about how to flush it out with water, and also some "don't put water in it, it'll rust the mechanism" posts. And also some old posts about MB cleaning cartridges, which I don't think exist any more. Can anyone tell me definitively whether or not flushing with water is ok? Or could I use Pen Flush instead? Or is Pen Flush just water with some chemicals in it and therefore just as risky?
Newbie Here, Hopefully this has not already been discussed or I will feel like an idiot. (My searches all came up empty.) Are there any safety issues with pouring used pen flush down the drain? Is it safe for ground water? Or should I be discarding it with the used motor oil from my husband’s race car? I used the usual fountain pen brands and I also use Calligraphy inks. Any advice would be appreciated. Flourish, Casey Haven
