Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
Well, in general I recommend not using refills. They are probably OK for printers with ink nozzles that are NOT built into the cartridge (like Canon printers), but I would still be careful. The ink may not be the same quality as what you would get from the manufacturer.
If you are using an HP printer, the ink nozzle is built into the printer cartridge and is not meant to be run for refill after refill. When you replace your ink cartridge, you also replace your old nozzle with a brand new one. Helps keep the print quality good (especially important if you're trying to print out photographs).
Another point to consider is that when you bought your printer, you were probably looking at print quality. Why take a chance on compromising that print quality to save a few bucks?

Epson printers have their print head nozzles
built directly into the printer instead of into the disposable ink cartridges.
These print heads can become clogged over time, especially if you are using ink
refill kits instead of replacing the cartridges with new ones. To clean the
nozzles, you will need to open up the printer and physically remove the print
solution for cleaning your printer nozzle
85% distilled water
10% Isopropyl alcohol
