Printer ink cartridges just cost money, don't they? I get so tired of buying yet another pack of ink. Perhaps because I never had to buy ink til I was 26 years old. Barely knew what the stuff was.
But, as a home school mom, I am constantly printing, copying, and scanning things. I go through ink at an alarming rate! I should buy stock in Kodak.
I found a way to get a few more pages out of my ink cartridge. I was so excited about it! I tried it several times, and lo and behold - it works!
I have never just thrown away a cartridge since, without doing this one simple trick first.
OK, so maybe you knew this. It took me awhile to come across this weird trick, so maybe it can help someone else. Share the love, and all that.
Yes, all you do is roll it side-over-side.
Not end over end. And don't shake it.
For some reason, those two methods do not work. I tried. I mean - if rolling it several times gently is good - shaking it vigorously is better, right? Wrong.
Here's the checklist:
1. Just hold it like you do when you are going to put it in the printer - right side up.
2. Then roll it side-over-side about 4-5 times.
That's it! You will get about 10-12 more pages out of it.
Have you ever done this? Did it work for you?
