Do you always find yourself rummaging through all your pens to find that pen that still works?
You buy those Bic pens cause they’re cheap, but when they stop working – often because we just simply don’t put the cover back on – they end up back in the drawer, instead of the garbage.
Well, try this simple hack to get them working again!
Take a lighter or match, and hold it under the ballpoint for 2-3 seconds (careful to hold it a few cm from the pen, otherwise it will melt the plastic), and you’re done!
Why it works: It’s pretty straightforward, with ballpoint pens the gel can congeal, and the fire puts it back in liquid state. Now make sure to keep the cover on.
