And it depends on how you value your own time. I have on occasion revived inkjets. Involves mess, several passes with careful brushing & cycling thro' the printer, also replacing the little foam pads on which the printer heads rest. All right if you're feeling creative and have a free afternoon.
(I've found that making pastry afterwards is a good way of getting the ink stain off yer fingers. Offer this as tip of the day.)
