What I use to clean my stamps

I have tried 3 different sprays out there for cleaning stamps, well I have found one that gets even the toughest inks off your stamps. It is called "Simple Green", you can get it in a spray bottle at your local Hardware store...I got mine at Canadian Tire and it will last you a few years at least. It costs about $6 or so, I tell ya it is well worth it if you have used Stayz on inks on your stamps and couldn't get the ink off at all...try this stuff :)! I mixed 1 part simple green to 2 parts water, just take a look at the back of your bottle to see what they have to say, but this is what I used. I had an extra spray bottle around (or get one from the dollar store), mix the stuff up in it and there you can start cleaning your stamps :)!
Once you have sprayed your stamps with this stuff, I suggest taking one of those soft nail brushes you can get (made from soft plastic, and is a rectangle in shape) and scrub it really well. Then you can run it under some lukewarm/to warm water while scrubbing and this I find usually takes it off really really well, then let your stamps dry on a piece of paper towel.

Happy Cleaning :)!
