You must mean 'industrial strength' perfume!! Some people can leave a room and you smell it hours later! Old ladies use to use rose water as perfume, it was cheap, they could make their own.

FYI: Water taken from a dehumidifier is considered distilled.

The recipe for stamp cleaner I have calls for 1 quart distilled water, 1 tablespoon Dawn Dishsoap and 10 drops glycerin. I've been using this for six months or more and find it works very well. I've never heard of diluting SU Cleaner. Also have some stamps that I bought used and found them to be losing their softness. When I cleaned them I wet them first with water and they reeked of baby wipe smell. I think the baby wipes actually dry out the rubber stamps.

I'll bet it would be free of deposits, minerals, etc..., but what about algae or mold? I know I don't clean out my dehumidifier every day...

I'm going to try making this...I really loved the rose fragrance of the SU cleaner before they changed it to the floral one they now carry. They say it is the same...but it smells a lot different...could just be variation on essential oil/crops/supplier or something. The new one makes me sneeze/wheeze and the old one did not.

How do you use an eyedropper without taking the tip of the blender pen? for refilling the blender pen?

You can also take an old set of Blening pens set them open pen tip side down and fill them from the ink refill with the In Colors to create a set of Brush tip Markers for your incolor set. Just make sure and label them.


Markey! Thank you so much! I just made a Baja marker and I am sooo happy! You guys are so smart and wonderful! Will be trying all the recipes, too! Thank you, thank you!

Simple Green is a cleaning solution found in a spray bottle. You can sometimes find it in the automotive section. It is used sometimes for cleaning tires I think. I found it at WalMart. Others have found it at Dollar General but ours doesn't carry it.

It is a very highly concentrated solution, see instructions on the bottle.

Baby wipes tend to have alcohol in them so I would not use them all of the time--very drying and can be harsh on a baby's bottom if they have been ill too (know that one from experience).

Just a word of advice on stamp cleaner--make sure your container has a good sealing lid otherwise you knock it over (or in my case the kitten does) it leaks everywhere and what a mess.

I've been using the glycerin, distilled water and baby wash--so far, so good.

I've been using it with my clear stamps. No problem so far =) Clear stamps do stain very easily though especially with certain inks but it's that way no matter what cleaner you use. Ultra Clean gets a little bit more of the ink off sometimes but the clear stamp will still be stained..

There is a recipe on page 1, post #3.

2 teaspoons glycerin
4 teaspoons distilled water
1/4 teaspoon rubbing alcohol

It says you do not need to pull the blender tip out, just use an eye dropper. This will go a long way so don't double it!

Ladies, Let me add my cleaner to your list. The name of the product is called Awesome & I get it at the dollar store. It is great for cleaning stamps particularly Staz-on. I have used it for approx 5 years now & really like it. It actually cleaned off some Staz-on that had been on a stamp for quite awhile.

I tried the recipe for the blender pens this weekend and it works really well! I tried using a baby medicine dropper to put the liquid in the pen but that didn't work so well, so I just rested the pen in the liquid in the bowl and it absorbed it right up. I LOVE blender pens so thanks for the recipe!

I don't want to be the joykill here, but I made the blender pen refill and so far I'm not that happy with it!! I don't think I read one post that says people have had a problem with this....but I tested this one against the Dove one and the dove one blends much better. Maybe I did something wrong? This mixture seems to float more on the paper before "soaking in" and blending.......Perhaps if I add more glycerin? Any suggestions??
I even used proper measuing spoons!

Can new TIPS be purchased for the blender pens???
If the tips can be taken out...why not have replacements??
I have a couple that are pretty worn.

I bought replacement tips for the Dove markers at a stamp/scrap show. I'm sure you can buy them from Archivers or a store like it.


HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE

Yes you can buy replacement tips - do a google search on Dove Blender pen refill tips -- you'll get a lot of hits for online sights. You can also go to Dove at this link
