What's Your "cleaner" Ink?


Flaxmoore

Recommended Posts

I have a Prefounte that I use for ink testing, which has been stained purple.  I had a tiny bit of Quink with Solv-X left, which helped a bit but residual purple remains.  I bought a bottle Sailor Doyou at a pen show and have loaded up the pen, curious to see how it turns out.

@james3paris, I very much d0ubt it; Quink packaging hasn't mentioned "Solv-X" for years.  My dad bought it back in the 1980s, before he switched over from his 1954 Parker "51" to the ugliest Pentel Rolling Writer he could find, with the hope that it'd be too ugly for anyone at work to steal.  I am very happy to have his old "51" now.  It's a bit battered, but still writes like a champ.

Fellows, what about standard Parker Washable Blue (that with a light blue sticker)? Some praise it for cleaning properties, but I have no experience with it and would prefer to avoid it (since it is ugly as sin) unless it indeed helps with cleaning...

Any results to report.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY

I'm deliberately trying to write that pen dry, but I may have to flush it early.  I have to say DoYou isn't my favorite color, so  I have to make an effort to use it.  

 

Meanwhile we have a Lamy Safari with a converter stained by some red ink; we've loaded it with DoYou too.  I'll have some photos up soon.

I look forward to the results.
