Default Stamp cleaning advice needed!

I recently got a set off e-bay for my sister who desperately wanted Asian Art.I thought that will be a nice Birthday surprise for her. There was a picture that showed some black staining on the rubber but it looks far worse in real life!! I'd sure like to try and clean this up before I give it to her,any suggestions?

Oh yu must go to Inky Antics and order their Ultra Clean Cleaner. I just go some a few weeks ago and am truly amazed at how great this product is. I've used it on those eBay bargains that have been sitting with stains for years, it seemed. It has even cleaned Stazon ink stains when even the Stazon Cleaner couldn't do it. Service is great, shipment quick! Good luck!

Judikins Fabric and Permanent Ink Cleaner! This stuff ROCKS! It gets off a LOT of old ink. I also heard someone uses a power dish brush to scrub the rubber.

I second the Ultra Clean advice. I got this stuff recently and *love* it. It cleans better than *anything* I've ever tried!! I pulled out some of my old stazon stained stamps and the UC cleaned them right up!!

One thing I have done in a pinch is ink up the stamps with versamark ink and let it dry. Then I ink it again and clean the versamark off with SU stamp cleaner. It takes quite a bit of the staining off. Not as good as the other cleaners, but it helps!

I second the Ultra Clean. It took off my old Black Stazon. Archivers sells it if you happen to have one nearby.

Tried this one and it works. Awesome from the Dollar Store and an old toothbrush. Condition after with the olive oil or Glycerin.

Even cleaned up most of the wood block!

I love Ultra Clean. Gets even the nastiest stamps like new. You might give the olive oil a second thought--oils are historically destructive to rubber.
