Safe, easy to wash inks for the clear TWSBI barrels?

Recommended Posts

I already had some staining on one from Noodler's black, and had some shimmer left over in another one from Colorverse's Gluon, both inside the barrel where the small grooves are.

 

What are the inks I should definitely stay away from if I don't want to permanently stain the barrel? Are there specific colors that stain more than others? What are the easy to wash out inks?

depends on how badly you want to avoid staining, for maximum safety there's waterman serenity blue and pelikan 4001 konigsblau.  reds seem to stain a bit more.  there are some inks out there with a reputation for staining, see

TWSBI inks are easy to wash out and other brands of similar unsaturated dye based inks should be OK

I've found that if I have any staining from ink inside a barrel, a a fill and run through with Doyou seems to leave things nice and clean again. I'm sure there's some science behind it, but I prefer to think of it as magic.

Avoid Pelikan Brilliant Red and clean unused pens before storing them away. Look into sheening inks without particles, there was a thread that had them somewhere in this forum.

Always looking for new ways to downsize my collection.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
