How do you get old ink pens to write?

Soaking them for a while in a cup of hot water will work also. (03/24/2009)
Use a match and heat the tip of the pen, it should start the ink flowing. But be careful that the heat from the match doesn't melt the pen. (03/24/2009)
The match works on most pens, but inexpensive pens have plastic tips that will melt over the heat, so be careful. There is nothing worse than cleaning ink stains from clothing! (03/27/2009)
