A Disastrous Myth: Freezing Compatible Inkjet Cartridges for Longer LifeSeptember 22, 2010 No Comments
There are a lot of printer users who just want to save some more from their printer cartridges. While others have already switched to the inexpensive compatible inkjet cartridges, there are still those who try different ways to keep the life of their inks and toners longer than these could.
One way which has been considered as a problem rather than solution is freezing compatible inks. So why is this a disastrous myth and what can you do to save those inks and toners without harming anyone?
Here are the answers to all those questions. Freezing compatible printer inks and even laser toner cartridges is not advisable for those budget savers since it can cause the cartridge to either expand or worse, explode. Many printer manufacturers are even wondering why there are those who try this method when it is not a way to save but a move to waste more money.
So what can you do to properly store those printer cartridges? A good tip is to seal the cartridges first then put it in a zip-lock plastic with a damp sponge inside. Then, place it in a dark area to avoid any changes in temperature.
Now you know what you can try to keep the lives of your cartridges longer. Don’t always believe what others say especially when you yourself doubt that “tip” since you can really lose a lot sometimes rather than gain what you want.
