Save Yourself a Bunch of Money and the Planet from Imminent Disaster
As you were plucking another empty paper towel roll from the garbage—sometimes it seems like you’re the only one interested in recycling in that house, right?—it occurred to you that this was the low-hanging fruit. You’ve been meaning to buy replacement Lexmark ink cartridges ever since the warning light started flashing a few days back. But tossing them, you’re now realizing, makes you the same as whoever tossed this paper towel roll in the garbage. (Let’s not kid ourselves. We know who did it.)
If the only thing that’s been keeping you from buying a Lexmark ink cartridge refill kit is the intimidating prospect of pulling it off, let’s end that here and now. Besides being the eco-friendly move, you also stand to reap a huge savings. And when you see just how easy it is to do, you’ll laugh at yourself for not doing it sooner.
For starters, the procedure’s relatively uniform for all of the models.
1: Put the cartridge over a paper towel or two to absorb any remnants and use a third to give the cartridge a quick wipe down.
2: Locate the refill holes at the top of the cartridge and insert a pen in each to widen them a bit. For color cartridges, each color has its own hole. If it’s not immediately clear which is which, you can insert a toothpick to sample the remaining ink.
3: Then, take the needle that comes with the kit and inject the ink into the corresponding holes.
4: When you’re done, wipe the top of the cartridge down and cover the holes with the kit’s seals. (Scotch Tape works just as well.)
5: Re-install the cartridge and sit back and bask in your awesomeness. In a few short minutes, you saved yourself a bunch of money and the planet from disaster for another day.
