The Dip Pen Nib Cleaner will remove fresh stubborn and old dried-on Indian and permanent inks from the dip pen nibs, steel tubular nibs of technical and other Drawing pens. Zest-It cleaner has a pleasant smell, contains no CFC's or Aromatics, is biodegradable, re-usable, water-miscible with a minimum usable life of 5 years.
*Pour a small amount into a suitable container that has a lid and drop the nibs into the solution, leave to soak for 10 to 20 minutes, remove after this time and wash with water, dry on a kitchen towel, your nibs will be clean, refreshed and ready for use. Keep this container lidded and labelled for cleaning your nibs because it is reusable with a long active life.
If you have pens where the nib is permanently attached or you don't want to remove the nib from its holder, then you can swish the nib in a small amount of liquid or dampen a cloth and clean the nib. A dampened cloth works well in many situations.
Caution: this product works so well that - if the nibs are left in the liquid too long, it may discolour the nibs by taking the coloured lacquer off the surface. The nib will not be harmed but it could be just a 'grey' colour when it comes out, whereas they may have been bronze when you put them in!
