Refreshing Gel Pens

Does anyone know how to resuscitate dry gel pens? They appear to have a lot of color left in them but won't write.

I know you can get a regular ball point pen to write again by holding the tip (ball) of the pen to a lit lighbulb for a few seconds. It might be worth a try with the gel pens.

if you blow in the end it usually moves the clog out...but do not suck on the end or you'll have a mouth full of gel

Blowing on them only makes them work for a second, as does soaking them in hot water. I've asked around and it seems they tend to do dry out. I have a set of 50 that all dried out shortly after buying them so I just avoid gel pens now.
