I used to refill the "non-refillable" cartridges on my old H-P inkjet

[Experiential note: Take the cartridge and the ink outside - to a remote
area - to do the re-inking.  Don't try doing this in the house.  This
operation has (or at least it used to have) plenty of opportunity to make a
heck of a mess!]
