Smile Reinkers and Markers

Not sure if this is the right place to be asking this but here goes. Some time ago I read that it was possible to reink or refill the SU markers. Has anyone tried this or is this one of those urban myths? If you've done it, how did you do it? Thanks in advance. Whenever I've had a question, this site comes through for me!

I have not needed to refill my SU markers yet. I did discover that Ink Refresher works on markers that have dried out due to having the caps left off (I have six kids, so you can imagine how often this happens ). Mine is by Ranger, and it's just labeled Ink Refresher. I bought it for about $5 at my LSS.

With the Tombow you can pull out the nib and drop ink in. With SU I have not been able to figure out how to do that so I just stick the tip of the brush end in the hole in the tip of the reinker and then quickly turn it upside down so that reinker is on top. Then I squeeze one drop at a time until the tip absorbs it and have never had a mess doing that at all. Works great for me. I cannot figure out how to reink the fine tip, but I do not like SU fine tips on the pens anyway, so no great loss.

Thanks, Amysings and Annabelle1974. You've given me valuable info. The reason I was asking is I have a customer who is considering buying the markers and since she watches her money carefully, I know the reinking would be a real selling point for her. Annabelle1974, somewhere I read that you should store your markers on their sides so that the ink would distribute evenly between the two ends which makes me think they have a common "tank" so to speak. If that's the case, then both will be inked by starting with the brush point. Will try your method. Thanks for sharing!

Adele, Not sure if this is helpful, but I have the markers (got the whole shebang as my first step into SU! inks along with a BB stamp pad, pencils and blender pens, so I'd have lots of color options) and have used them for about four years and have not even come close to feeling like they're running dry, even the ones I gravitate to and use a lot. I've been watching this thread in case I ever need to reink, but so far, no need. On my favs, I'm almost wondering if the brush end is going to wear out before the ink goes dry!
