Default Cleaning scissors after mounting stamps

I just discovered a way to get that gunt off your scissors after mounting stamps. This is new for me so it may be old hat to others.

Stazon all purpose cleaner...yep..just rub it on the scissors and the gunt just desolves..I wiped them with a tissue and reapplied to get the rest off. WOW it works.

Thanks for taking this time to read it...Any other suggestions on how to get ink off everything would be appreciated. I got to the store and I looked at my hands...Ink on all ten fingers..the checker asked about it and I gave her a business card...LOL

I have used just plain old rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball for about 4 years. Works well and doesn't leave an oily film.
As for the inky hands... guess that worked out well for ya after all. But, you can use the alcohol on them as well.

Great ideas ~ I use Un-DU and it comes right off. You can get it in the craft dept. at Walmart.. it will last a really long time. I keep a bottle right on my desk.

I have TONS of these from my last 2 pregnancies. The hospital stocked my room with them and of course they came home with me. I'll be taking them to my craft area now. I just ordered what I thought was scissor cleaner, but it is to help loosen up scissors. Glad I saw this - my scissors have been driving me crazy!!

I have used GooGone to degunk scissors for a long time but alcohol swabs would be a lot easier...may have to try it. As for the inky fingers...well, first of all, it's a Stampin' Badge of Honor, right? BUT if you must get it off and can't wait to shampoo your hair (for some reason that always takes off most of it!) then try the little hand sanitizer lotions and gels, they take off quite a bit, even the permanent black ink. Just stand by with a paper towel after you apply the sanitizer...you'll need it to finish cleaning your hands. Jan

I have used the Awesome cleaner from Dollar Tree to take the stickiness off of scissors. (It is great for removing ink from stained rubber too.) For your fingers you could try the Magic Eraser sponge. I used that to take permanent marker off of my son's fingers.

Others have also posted here to use versamark on your scissors before cutting the rubber and it keeps the goo off.

I found some wipes in Michaels that work great. I had always used Goo Gone, and it worked fine. I thought these would be convenient when I'm at a workshop so I bought them. They work even better than Goo Gone. I can't remember the name, but they were in the adhesive & scissors aisle.

Word of caution--I used a Magic Eraser to get ink off my arm on time (I leaned my arm on a page that came off the printer before the ink dried. I ended up with huge rash that felt like some kind of chemical burn. It hurt sooooooo bad. I use the Magic Erasers on all kinds of things but never again will I use one on my skin!

I'm surprised that no-one uses the Adhesive remover that we sell - it works great.

Default Cooking Oil Works

I used plain old cooking oil on a paper towel to remove the gummy residue. It's a lot cheaper than GooGone and who doesn't have it on hand. Works on our scissors and takes off the residue left by sticky labels, too. Seems to take less rubbing than alcohol.

well... I scanned all this pretty quick, so if someone already said it, please excuse me.
I use Avon's Skin So Soft.... yes, it's greasy..... but, smells SO nice!

I use alcohol also.... but that takes longer.

I once saw on here that you could wet a dryer sheet and that works for me! I love the tips on here.

Default WD-40 pens work FABULOUS for gunk-removal!

Because I can't stand gunky scissors, I clean mine VERY frequently when I'm cutting rubber. I also can't stand the mess of goo-gone or other liquid products that you have to apply without dripping onto other stuff. So my solution to this is the wonderful new WD-40 lubricant pens! They have a tip on them like an old fashioned, flat tip felt marker and you can slid that sucker up and down the blade of your scissors and it scoots the rubbery stuff right off! A quick swipe with a dry paper towel and I'm cutting rubber again...no drips, no mess, no danger of cutting my fingers on the blades. LOVE those WD-40 pens!!!

If you're interested in trying them, I found mine at the check out stand at Walmart, but they also have them on end-aisle displays at Home Depot and other home repair places.

Another one here that uses plain ole rubbing alcholol. My dh has to give himself shots on a regular basis, so I just use the extra packs of alcohol wipes he gets with the syringes (that he doesn't need of course!). I keep the wipes on my stamping table. Makes cleanup super easy.

The good news is that it was not a chemical burn, as there are no chemicals in a Magic Eraser. (It's melamine) What you did was remove the skin - as it is a super fine abrasive.

So what you have is a self-induced scrape! Ouch!
