Question cleaning your stamps?!?

I was curious as to how most people clean their stamps. I have only been stamping for a little under a year and have done several things to clean. I have used the cleaner from Stazon, water and soap, alcohol and baby wipes. I would love to hear what others do.

I've used Fingernail Polish with vitamin E to clean off Encore ink from stamps. It does a good job.

Default Cleaning

I clean after each stamp with my SU cleaner pad so my stamps stays clean. If I can't clean it enough that way I'll use soap and water. I do have a problem with my gold/silver inks... not cleaning too well. So any suggestions would be great.

I use Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist, too. For tough colors (black/stazon), I have an extra Yo Yo Yellow pad that I use, too.

I use Simple Green mixed with water (I think it is 20% SG and 80% water) and spray it on my SU stamp scrub thing. For StazOn I've only ever used the Staz On cleaner.

I use SU scrubber, did use SU mist, but last bottle I got didn't seem to work very well, so I have switched to the Ultra Clean that I got from Inky Antics. Several of the girls here raved about it so I'm trying it.

I've used baby wipes, the stampin' scrub with our mist, staz-on cleaner for staz on and now I've also used the Ultra Clean...it's great! I've also, as a mistake, used the yo yo yellow...apparently my stamp wasn't completely clean, it was after that! I've heard of some people getting an extra yellow pad just for this purpose...

If you have some stamps that are really stained, I suggest the ultra clean, it's great, I got some stamps in a trade that were really really stained, and they look terrific now...

Default Argggggggggggg....why can't I find it?

I know that I have seen on this site a recipe for making your own stamp cleaner that is similar to SU's Stampin' Mist. It contains distilled water, baby wash and glycerin...but for the life of me, I cannot find anywhere the ratio of each item. I get frustrated when I'm looking for something on here, and can't find it. Does anyone know where I might find the post I'm looking for?
TIA

Default I found this to make a stamp cleaner

I Googled and found this....

Bonnie


Stamp Cleaner - Make Your Own!
From: Rosanne aka rockinstamper - [email protected]

Everybody probably has a recipe, but my favorite is a mix of Simple Green and water which I keep in a spray bottle (recycled from a pump hair spray) right on my stamp table It's probably 1/4 Simple Green to 3/4 water. I also use two painting pads in a recycled foam meat tray--spray one with my Simple Green mix and leave the other one dry. I swish the stamp around on the wet one (it actually foams up), then on the dry one. I never have a problem with the pigment ink; it even does pretty well on permanent ink if I hit it right away!

You can find Simple Green in the auto section of your Wal-Mart (I had to hunt it down, and that's where I found it). It's a terrific all-purpose, environmentally sensitive non-toxic cleaner--and, straight out of the bottle, does a fabulous job on those dirty hubcaps and tires on your car! In fact, most guys seem to know about it; I'm surprised they don't share it with the women in their lives... (And no, I don't have anything to do with the company that makes it--I just like having one cleaning product instead of dozens...)

Hope this helps. If anybody else uses Simple Green, or tries this, I'd love to hear what you think.

I have posted a picture to my blog showing the amazing difference when using Ultra Clean. Scroll down to the bottom of this photo album and click on the pictures to be amazed! I know I certainly was and have been VERY happy with this cleaner. If you google the product (it is made by Stewart Superior - Ultra Clean) you should come up with a variety of places to purchase this amazing cleaner!

Are dye inks really that hard on your stamps? Is it important to clean your stamps? Some brick and mortar stamp stores don't clean their stamps at all - and that was quite a shock!!!

Dye inks are not hard on your stamps at all......BUT you don't want to be transfering color from one pad to the next. Those stores may be stamping off the color before moving to the next color. I would NOT recommend leaving ink on your stamps.

well the wonderful and handsome Tim Holtz *never* cleans his stamps....and he is the king of stamping...

I on the other hand use too many colors in a row...so I clean in between colors...but generally if I am only doing one color stamping I don't clean....

If you use alcohol to clean your stamps be sure to rinse it off with water afterwards. I think the alcohol can harm the rubber. I have always heard that if you use baby wipes make sure they are alcohol-free. I've had some success with "Kiss Off" stain stick. Read about it years ago and have had mine for quite some time. I use it only for stubborn ink stains. I figure I can always use it for laundry stains, too - LOL! For everyday stamp cleaning I use either baby wipes or stamp-n-scrub and the homemade recipe mentioned above with distilled water, glycerin and babywash. When I finish that off I will try the Simple Green mixture.

Yup. Dye inks are harmless in themselves, if left on the stamp. Ink pad contamination is the issue.

As for Tim Holtz not cleaning his stamps, well, I understand why he does what he does because of his particular art style--it's actually conducive to his style!

However, if I deliberately stained my stamps with permanent black ink, cleaned them, but didn't "completely" remove those stains, I have discovered that I actually end up contaminating my Versamark Pad, as it does "lift" some of the ink stain residue off the surface of the stamp!

This results in "muddy" Versamark impressions when I go to use that same Versamark pad on another project. Ask me how I know.

So, because I work with Versamark a lot, I prefer to thoroughly clean solvent/permanent inks, like Staz-On, and others, completely off my stamps using Stewart Superior's Ultra Clean.

I concur w/ Julie - if you use VersaMark at all (and any light-colored or yellow inks) then you really *need* to clean your stamps otherwise you're going to contaminate all your lighter colors and your VersaMark.

AND I second the Ultra Clean!! That stuff is the *best* stamp cleaner I've ever used!!!

I went for years using spray on, daub on, and everything else in between. Did the baby wipe thing, towels and then graduated to a cloth diaper so there wouldn't be fuzzies. Honestly, I have no idea how I went so long without a stampin scrub love the darn thing.

Ok, I just bought my first stamp and scrub (and spray) and I'm NOT impressed!

#1 - it won't stay put in the holder
#2 - it has tons of fuzzies on it! Yes, I washed it first.

Any advice?

I also LOVE the Ultra Clean -- that stuff is the BEST!!!

I did just hear a report that SU is modifiying the stamp and scrub. If you are not a demonstrator contact the demo you purchased it through and you will be able to replace it with a newly designed model that should "hold" it a lot better than the one you currently have. As far as the fuzzies go - I have no advice and it sounds like they are not making any changes to that portion. I'm lucky I purchased tons of the old ones and they have held up really well. I have also purchased the Ranger Rub It Scrub It and I really like it. There is no box for it so you need to pack it in a ziplock bag to travel, but it has worked really well for me.

HTH's.

Yeah, I'm with you on the Versamark pad thing - and I have an extra just for stamping with stained stamps (embossing with dark or opaque powders) or I just emboss using a dark pigment ink and leave the Versamark alone. Mixing Versamark and dark ink means I'm committing to a clean-up job - so I avoid it when I can. I am a big, big fan of embossing -so many of my well-used stamps have never met Mr. Ink.

The store I was referring to has umpteen "cafeteria" trays in the back - with all the items needed to demonstrate a card. So the stamp is dedicated to a particular color anyway. So I can see that where they choose to avoid the whole getting it in the wrong pad/cleanup thing by working this way. But it means using a single stamp one way.

I have also found that with the fine-detailed stamps that they loose some of the detail when they get too "gunked" up. Being that I use the Girlfriends set a lot with young girls it was really taking a beating and not looking good at all - until I cleaned it with the Ultraclean. Much better impression once again.

I had that same problem with mine. When I really got to looking at it, the two scrubs were not exactly the same size so I put the largest one in the lid(which is just a tad larger) and the smaller one on bottom. But first I used a NON-permanent tape runner on the back of both. This seems to hold them in and I can still take them out to wash them out if need be.

As far as the pads not staying in, I was having that problem also. Someone mentioned (I'm wanting to say it was fareygirl) using velcro to hold the pads down, I tried it, and it seems to be working great.

I have a question to those of you who have problems with the pads staying "put". Have you always had this problem? Or, did the problem begin after your first washing of the pads? And if it began after you washed them, what method did you use to wash them? Hand wash, or dishwasher? Inquiring minds want to know.

If you purchased your Stampin' Scrub between Feb and July 10, you probably have the "new" one. Check with the demo that you purchased it from - she will be able to get you a replacement from SU!

I got mine in november. I have put it in the dishwasher, but I wouldn't reccomend that at all. It frayed the edges, and the pads tend to curl a little bit now(which makes them not stay in very good). Also the fabric part of the pad is coming loose from the plastic part of the pad. Now I wash mine in the sink, I have a hard scrubbing brush, (you could use a tooth brush) and I use soap and water and scrub the pads.

I got mine in April or May. The first time I opened it, the scrubber in the lid fell out. The scrubber it self was smaller than the "clip things" on the sides. That's when I noticed that the two sides weren't identical and when I switched sides, it helped alot. The one in the lid stays put just fine now but the bottom one moves around still. I use the tape runner on the back and that does seem to help. But...

Was there a defect during that time frame that causes this problem? If so and the problem I was having has been fixed, I would like that replacement. But my demo has been so sweet to me and I don't want her to lose money or have to pay or something like that. Does SU absorb the total cost?

I tired the Ultra Clean for the first time today and I am so impressed!! It was wonderful and even cleaned the Staz-on off of my stamps. There wasn't a trace of ink left...great stuff!!

What is Inky Antics? A store? A web-site? I would like to get this Ultra Clean. I always use my SU Scrubber right away, but I still have some stains I can't get off..and I have tried all sorts of things,

Ultra Clean is also available at Archivers, if you have one near you. or www.inkyantics.com
It even got Black Stazon off of my shorts, earlier this summer.

Also, TAC's stamp cleaner IS Ultra Clean by Stewart Superior, just under The Angel Company's name. I add a bottle whenever I order.

You can also purchase it from inkyantics.com and sundayint.com
