I heard that we shouldn't use inkjet refill to printers because it will damage our printers later on. What do you think? Have you ever tried it? If yes, how long have you done that?

I tried one of the kits you buy yourself. I ended up with ink all over me and nothing in the printer. I am a klutz by nature, so I am probably not a good judge, but for me it was a complete waste of time. I know the company I work for uses it and they seem to think it's fabulous. So I guess my final answer is maybe.

How can they use it? Do they use a tool to do it? I am just worried that it will spill over my printer and paper.

There are tools and the techs are very good at it - I just had no success personally.

Not yet, but I want to since my cartridges are very expensive. The problem is that I'm not sure if anyone will do the refills for my printer. I know Walgreens won't. I'm hoping OfficeMax will but I haven't called them yet. I need to because both cartridges are almost empty.

I haven't tried it yet. But I see ..... there are so many stores or people who are offering inkjet or cartridge refill so I am wondering if it is okay.

Yes, but sometimes I refilled it successfully and sometimes not. I got my hands dirty by refilling it manually. Then my printer works crazy because it prints without an ink on the paper.

Yes, i use inkjet refill but my cartridge head is leak after one years. I am not using inkjet refill anymore, now i am using deskjet refill for my printer. I don't count for refill, perhaps more than five hundred times i refill it. My printer head leak, because i touch the head of cartridge and that is not purpose.

I have used an inkjet refill for my Canon printer and have been quite satisfied with the results. It was cheap and the quality was ok. I didn't myself refilled it but got it done from a local shop. You can use a single cartage for 2-3 refiles and then you need to discard them. also you can get many duplicate cartage which you can use but I doubt that they may hurt the printer head, though I have used it once.

I have never tried those before. I heard that it is very messy to use. I do buy the generic cartidges though because they are alot cheaper than the name brands.
