How do I clean a TWSBI cap?
Sometimes ink can get trapped between the inner and outer parts of a TWSBI cap. This problem is easy to fix.
You will need: a pencil and some adhesive tape.
- Wrap the tape around the end of the pencil so that it fits well inside the inner cap.
- Use the pencil to grip the inner cap and ease it out of the outer cap.
- Clean both parts with water and dry.
- Put the inner cap inside the outer cap and screw back onto the pen. The pen will push the inner cap back into place.
