Red face Recollections Stamp Cleaner

Has anyone bought and tried Recollections Stamp Cleaner? My DH found a bottle of this at Michaels for me but I am a bit concerned that it smells like alcohol or acetate (polish remover). The active ingrediants are 1-methoxy-2-propanal 99.5%, 2-methoxy1-propanol .4% and water .1%. I am concerned that this will dry out my rubber stamps and/ or eat my clear stamps. Thanks ahead of time for any comments.

LOL.... Only when I drag him into the store if we have time before a movie starts. Though he can find a lot of schtuff if I let him wander....

I personally don't care for that cleaner. The odor is really strong..almost noxious to me when I've used it. I ended up diluting it with water. I won't be buying this brand of stamp cleaner again. I like the grandmas rubber stamp cleaner better.

I've tried it too, and do not like it. My bottle didn't smell like alcohol, it just didn't work. There are a couple of threads on here about making your own stamp cleaner. And there were pretty good success with the recipes. I have a big jug of a cleaner I bought from Pacific Products that I love. It's called Joy Of Stamping E-Z Duz It Stamp Cleaner. Here's the address. Home and Basic Info - Joy of Stamping!

Personally, I make my own - that way you can be sure it's "safe" - just use baby oil, baby wash, and distilled water. Super cheap

I bought this when my local store didn't have any in stock and I won't be purchasing it again. The smell is awful!!
