Ever wondered how to clean the nozzle on a printer ink cartridge? Well wonder no more!

A blog posting on Cheap Ink Cartridges has revealed how to clean the nozzle on your printer ink cartridges.

Firstly, it advises users to remove the ink cartridge from the printer before using a small cotton swab dipped into alcohol to rub on the print head nozzle on the cartridge, repeating this process until the swab does not have any ink from the cartridge.

Once the print head is clean and dry the blog entry advises users to replace the cartridge in the printer before running the cleaning cycle through the printer's own software.

Advising on how to clean the print head in the printer, the author of the entry wrote: "Very gently, rub the cotton swab inside the printer where the ink cartridges were removed from. Repeat this process until the cotton swab does not have any ink from the cartridge.

"Once the print head in the printer is clean and dry, replace the cartridges back into the printer. Run the cleaning cycle through your printer software."
