Review: Rotring Cleaning Fluid for Technical Pens

This is the 100ml Rotring Cleaning Fluid for Technical Pens. Product images shows that the cap can come in different colours. Mine's the white cap.

I think technical pen cleaning fluid is really useful for anyone who uses fountain pens, more so for those who use a lot of them. It's great for cleaning the pen and clearing ink clogs when water just won't do.

This is my Hero fountain pen which I had not used for a while and now the ink's not flowing well because of the clogging. It's still easy to clean off surface stains like this. However for clogging, more drastic solutions are required.

I found a small tray and soaked the pen nib in the cleaning fluid overnight.

You can find a smaller tray to save the fluid. I think I used too much here.

The is how the nib looks after I took it out the next day. All the ink has dissolved. The nib and pen now looks and functions as good as new.

For seriously clogging, I would suggest first using water in a convertor to push through the filter system. Then use the cleaning fluid to push it through several times. I reused the flushing fluid several times. After that, I left the nib in the cleaning fluid overnight. For a brush pen that had serious clogging, I did this procedure two times.

It works and it's great.
