    It's a prank you clog the pen with the pipe cleaner


    7 years ago on Introduction

    I'm SO excited to find a brand new, clever solution to fixing my favorite (perpetually) "clogged pen[s]!" I need help, please, understanding how to use the pipe cleaner parts of this fix. Do I:
    Use the pipe cleaner to actually clear a clog?
    Leave the pipe cleaner in the pen's ink tube?
    What am I trying to accomplish using the pipe cleaner?

    Also, where in the heck will I find a pipe-cleaner these days?!

    Thanks for any help you can give me - I have high hopes for this fix!
