Default Clear stamps and bleach

Can I use bleach on my clear stamps? I know I can use it on rubber as long as you clean the stamp off well when you are done, but I don't want to ruin my clear stamps by experimenting - although I suppose I could try some of the $1 stamps from Michaels without wincing too much.
Rather have advice from the experts though! Thanks in advance for any input

Use of acetone, bleach or oil-based cleaners isn't advisable for acrylic stamps. If you would like to PM your email address I can send you a copy of what I give to my customers for our acrylic stamps for overall care tips. It is generic enough for acrylics to hopefully help.

This is what CTMH says about bleach on their stamps:

Q. I often use the bleaching technique. Will this harm my stamps?
A. Using the bleaching technique will not harm your stamps. We recommend that you use bleach with caution however, and immediately remove it from your stamps with the Spritz or Stamp Cleaner.

I have used bleach on my clear stamps - but I am VERY careful - I clean them immediately - right after I stamp the image it gets cleaned. Even if I am going to do another impression with the same stamp I still clean it immediately.
