if one “rejuvenates” a CLI-42 cart with this solution, would the expected final weight after the water & isopropyl evaporates be the same or different? Given glycerol should not evaporate, i expected the cart to weigh heavier than bone dry. CLI-42 bone dry is 13.5-13.6g, after I filled the cart with the rejuvenating fluid, let it sit overnight, drain/dry using ghwellsjr paper towel method, then weighed it 1d later and it was 13.63g.

I prepared 4x of the formula:
  • 8ml Glycerol
  • 80ml 91% Isopropyl
  • 320ml distilled water
thank you.

There are many mentions in this thread of pharmacist's cart conditioning formula, but I can't find the thread where he actually tells how to use it. I kind of got the impression that you just fill the cart with it then dry the cart. Is that correct?
Thanks

Can cloudy ammonia (ammonia with a surfactant/soap mixed in) be used in pharmacist's formula to clean blocked printer head nozzles? In Australia we can't buy clear concentrated ammonia, only household grade (~2%) cloudy/sudsing ammonia. Thanks
