    Windex works beautifully. It's what I've used to clean & unclog
    inkjets for nearly 20 years, & hasn't damaged even a single printer.
    You just have to be careful to keep it away from electrical contacts
    (eg; on the print head or carriage). If you do get some in the wrong
    place, clean it up with a rag wet in pure alcohol (iso or metho) & let
    it dry before powering up.

    For Ink cartridges with the print heads on them you can take a container
    lid and fill it with real warm water and set the cartridges head in the
    warm water for a while , take it out and dry it off with paper towels .
    This can be a mess but sometimes it does work .

    I like HP printers and have a newer one that uses those real small
    cartridges 56 or something . It always works and wasnt very expensive .

    I guess you have an Epson printer - bad choice. My HP sits for months at a
    time, then prints nicely when I need it to

    clogging up

    Yes. OKI still make dot matrix for example. You will pay a bit more
    for these because they are not so widely used these days. They are
    still the only type of printer which can be used to print multi-part
    forms such as airline tickets etc.
