Pixma G6020. Print Head Cleaning - Where Does The Wasted Ink Go?

Hooray! It worked! My cyan is printing again.  Question: Where does all the ink go following this step?  The loss, as was cautioned, is significant.  Where is it?

Hi,

The ink will go into the waste ink absorber. The waste ink absorber is a part built into the printer that absorbs ink during borderless printing and maintenance operations.

Hi @KansasCity,

The ink absorber referenced by ArthurJ is similar to an absorbent pad or sponge.  It has a service life and eventually fills.
