Nib Cleaning Solution

Our nib cleaning solution is perfect for removing dried-on ink from calligraphy pen nibs, fountain pen nibs and feeds and brushes. It can also be used to rinse calligraphy pen nibs instead of water during a writing session.

Can be used to flush pens through, or to soak nibs and feeds.


Decant a small amount of the solution into a small jar or receptacle. Rinse nib briefly and dry thoroughly. For dried-on ink, leave your nib to soak in the solution, the rinse and dry as usual.

Supplied in a 30ml glass bottle with dropper.

Like a charm!

The first nib I cleaned with this solution was one that I had used and then forgot to clean for months - On top of that, I was using platinum brand black carbon ink- one of the most water resistant inks on the market ~ It worked like a charm!


I am liking it. So far, I just add a tiny dot on my nib after using it, wait 4 sec, then I clean it with a tissue and all the ink goes quickly.

Works well

I tried this nib cleaning solution for the first time, it’s efficient and works well

I haven’t used it yet because I am currently taking a bouncing and stylization class using felt pen I don’t need to clean a nib. I will update as needed.
