I've had a half-gallon jug made up of the cleaner ( I share with my stamping friends) and it sits around for about a year till it's used up. Still looks as good as the day it was made. Clear with just the slightest tint of green from the soap used in it. Oh yes, I've changed from Dawn to Palmolive dish soap with aloe. Still works great. But I don't see any reason for using a preservative.
I shop at a Kroger store and the glycerin is in the same area as peroxide, iodine and rubbing alcohol.
Also since SU has come out with clear blocks i find that they get a little messy after use and just wipe them off with a littlt rubbing alcohol. It's cheap and I think the stamps stick better to a very clean surface.
