I guess I would try the SU stamp cleaner as that has conditioners in it. The other thing you might be able to use, if you can find it, is glycerin. CVS Pharmacy used to carry it in a bottle but, from what I understand they don't anymore. However, CVS does have Fleet Liquid Glycerin "suppositories." I know this sounds a little strange but I was also looking for the glycerin for the homemade blender refill stuff and this was all I could find. They're like plastic "bubble" type applicators filled with liquid glycerin. You just take the cap off and squeeze out what you need. Each bubble doesn't hold a whole lot but it may be enough for what you need.

I would certainly only try anything on 1 stamp at a time though.

Let us know what works.

Paper Junky, thanks for correcting me on this (and so gently too ); didn't know about oil breaking down rubber. I would hate to be sending her a bunch of new stamps if she followed my advice and ruined hers!
