Default Using Reinker on pad of a different color

Has anyone tried rinsing out an ink pad that had one color of ink and then reinking with a different color? The pads I'm considering have very, very light ink, so light in fact that they hardly show up on white cardstock (probably why they were retired by CTMH) and I was wondering if I could rinse them out with water (since it is dye based ink) and reinking with a different, darker color that I like. Will this work if I let it dry out after rinsing it out? Or should I just sell them on Ebay and use the money toward buying an ink pad I want? I know I probably won't get but a portion of the amount a new pad would cost. Help me think this through.

I've never done it myself, but I've read that many SCS members have done this. It should work out fine for you as long as the pad itself is in good shape. Couldn't hurt to try, anyway! Good luck.

It is easy to rinse them out. It takes aTON of water. just keep it under running water and squeeze with your thumbs FOREVER. When it is eventually clean, it takes a couple days to dry. then reink. A clean, dry pad takes almost a whole bottle of ink FYI. I washed my retiring SU! pads and reinked with the new colors a year and a half ago.
