"These wipes were something I developed for myself out of need. I got tired of picking lint and fuzz off of the end of my pointed pen nib. It seemed I spent more time cleaning my nib end than I did writing. I found a product which worked but wasn't just quite right for absorbency of the inks I use. After working with the company on the exact application, they developed a wipe which was perfect! This wipe is available nowhere else in the world." 

"My suggestion for use is to fold in half and then in half again resulting in a "quartered" wipe. I use one surface until full and then flip over. Once that area is full, I unfold and fold back the other direction, leaving two new surfaces to use. I practice about 2 hours each day and each wipe last me about one month. Keep using until it just won't hold any more ink and then throw away."
