Default Help with spectrum noir pens please.

I bought spectrum Noir alcohol pens-72 of them in a wide range of colors. Did not get into coloring. Never used. Many are dried up. I can get some color on chisel end but none on fine end.
Since not used, my thought is the dye is still there, but the alcohol is dry. Is there someway I can reconstitute these without re-Inkers? What experiences are out there? Help!

Here you go, a video by Lindsay, the Frugal Crafter. You will need denatured alcohol, found at Walmart or hardware stores, not rubbing alcohol.


Scroll down a bit to see the marker video.

Now you tell me! LOL wonder what the difference is between rubbing alcohol and denatured? My markers aren't dry but my reinkers are! I added rubbing alcohol to some of them today for the tutorial project (dyed scarf)

Rubbing alcohol: Usually Isopropyl alcohol. Mostly used in medical scenarios.

Denatured alcohol: AKA methylated spirits. Ethanol with a bit of methyl alcohol added. Primarily used as a solvent, or as a fuel.

Both are toxic if consumed. Denatured alcohol should not be used topically. As a cleaner, denatured alcohol is more "green" than many other substances.

I don't think the rubbing alcohol will hurt the reinkers, but it doesn't work as well.

I binge watched her youtubes awhile back. It was very informative. I love her hints and tutorial on tools. But lately she is teaching painting and I am just not that interested.

I signed up to get her blog posts by email, and I just delete them if it's about a subject I don't care about.
