1. Take your pen and remove the refill.

2. Cut the cotton swab at a sharp angle and insert it into the opening of the pen. You may use the tape to secure  it.

3. Wrap the aluminium foil around the neck of the pen, a couple of centimeters above the tip of the cotton swab. Wrap tightly, and secure with tape at the top.

4. Moisten the cotton swab with a drop of water. As said by Sharon Vaknin, this will not harm your mobile or tablet.

You’are done! Remember to keep touching the aluminium foil at all times. You may need to re-moisten the cotton swab, if your stylus is not functioning.
