Ink Samples And The Rice Trick


This is so simple and useful. Fill a small jar with rice and push an ink sample to the bottom. Remove the bottle cap and fill your pen. Voilà!


  1. I prefer the Lego solution. I don’t like to use food for non eating purposes.


    • I would have to purchase a box of Legos for which I have no other use. Instead, I reused a medicine jar filled with rice that keeps for years and in this case four or five so far. Some folks use marbles. Whatever works, eh?


  2. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing it.
