Does anyone have the recipe to make your own spray bottle of stamp cleaner?
I know it exists out there someone because I saw it once but forgot to write it down. I want to save money on the cleaner so that I can spend on the new stamp sets coming out in July. Any help out there??
Location: My very hot stamp room, in Phoenix! It's a dry heat.
For the most part, I just mist my stampin' scrub with water. It works fine. When the pads get dirty, put them in the dishwasher on the top rack and run them through with the dishes. NO HEAT dry and they are fluffy and beautiful once again!
I just thought the body spray was included for conditioning the stamps. ?????
But actually, in that same thread, I saw a post from someone who used diluted baby wash. So I got myself a spray bottle, filled about 1/4 (little less) with baby wash, and the rest with water. I spray that on my stamp scrubber. It's awesome! And smells good too. And of course it's going to be gentle on your stamps and won't dry them out.
Glycerin suppositories melt in the bottle of solution (they may take a little while, so use warm water with your baby shampoo) and for about $2.00 at the pharmacy you will have stamp cleaner for eons!!
Rather than the glycerin suppositories....(yuck!) I found a recipe on this site that I have tried....
Measure carefully...1 squirt baby wash, 1 squirt (or so) of liquid glycerin(comes in a bottle in pharmacy department - keeps stamps moist) and fill with water. I like this one - smells nice and conditions stamps.
Can also use watered down windex but it is more drying.
That's my 2 cents - for free!
Someone stated in that thread that you cannot protect your stamps with versamark because the versamark will "eat your stamps". So if Versamark is made of glycerin and it damages stamps if not cleaned off, is it safe to use in a cleaner???? I ask because I really want to make my own cleaner, but I don't want to damage my stamps. I spend way too much money on them...
Does anyone know what ingredient in the SU mist "conditions" the stamps?
