CLEANING YOUR FOUNTAIN PEN - Writing instruments - Care Recommandations - Cartier Customer Services

To ensure that your fountain pen functions in ideal conditions, you are recommended to clean it approximately once every three months, particularly in the following cases:

  • if the ink has dried out after a period of not being used,
  • if the color of the ink needs to be changed,
  • if the ink-flow is irregular.

To clean the nib block:

  • remove the cartridge from the pen;
  • clean the pen in clear water and dry it carefully.
  • For fountain pens equipped with a converter, insert the converter full of cold water and flush the water through the ink-feed. Continue until the water is clear. Clean the external parts of the fountain pen using a soft, dry cloth. Do not use any other product.
