Regular Maintenance of Printer Inkjet Cartridges is a Lifesaver

When there is a problem with your printer, the first instinct might be to clean your device. You may clean it every month or every other month, but doing regularly can save you from inevitable problem. Whether there is a problem or you just want to do precautionary maintenance, cleaning your Printer Inkjet Cartridge is indeed a great idea. It is easy and can be a lifesaver.

In order to do this, first you need to cover your workplace with a paper towel or newspaper to ensure that you don’t make a mess because usually ink tip out during the cleaning process. Take the cartridge out of the printer and place it gently onto the clean surface.

Then dip a lint-free cloth into de-ionized or vapor distilled water. Avoid using tap water as there is a risk of minerals from tap water building up in your printer cartridge resulting in causing damage later on. Also make sure to wring out excess water from the cloth because water can leak into the part of the printer thus causing damage. So, use only damp cloth and not too wet. Now, with this cloth you wipe the print cartridge down gently to remove the dust, paper fibers and excess ink from the Inkjet Cartridges.

It is important to make it a habit every once in a while. This way, you will not only keep your inkjet cartridge working, but it will also help in extending your printer’s life. However, it is important to follow user’s manual and confirm that all these instructions match with your printer usage.
