Default Remember the craft ink pads SU used to sell? I have a question...

Since SU no longer sells them or the refillable ink, can I rinse them out and fill them with new classic ink refills? Is there another alternative that I don't know about? I have 13 craft pads that are mostly dry but in excellent shape otherwise. I'd love to put them to good use.

Not something I would try, if you do please let us know the outcome,

The Craft ink is oil based pigment, not water based dye like the Classic inks.

Maybe Dawn or some other grease-release cleaner would remove the oil residue. But that type of heavy cleaning would possibly destroy the foam pad, which is not as sturdy as the foam used for Classic ink pads.

One alternative could be to search for Craft reinkers.

You have me curious.

Check the condition of the foam before you try to wash one. I used my craft inks for a long time, for ink techniques and scrapbooking. But the last time I pulled one out, it looked like it had flattened out and when I rubbed it on cs, it completely disintegrated.

You may be right about the possibility of the foam pad eventually disintegrating. I had a roll of foam tape that hadn't been used in years. When I tried to use it, the foam side broke off into tiny pieces; it was useless.
