Default stampin' scrub

I just received my new stampin' scrub and can't wait to say good-bye to baby wipes and lint! I was wondering if you can use the stampin' scrub with craft ink or the liquid chalk ink? I don't want to use anything on it that won't clean off and I know the chalk ink can be hard to clean off stamps. Thanks for any help.

I use mine for all inks. The only problem I've had is that it is over a year old now and when I did a marathon stamping all in black ink (a bunch of alphabets I had purchased) the black ink stayed even after cleaning the pad and the water running clear. I put it in the dishwasher all by itself and that seemed to help but now it is a little warped (I did have it on air dry and the quick wash setting).

I've read that folks still use a pre-wash step (like baby wipes, or a damp cloth) with pigment and chalk inks before using the stampin scrub, just to cut down on the volume of thick ink sitting in the scrub.

I also take a baby wipe (or seven...depending on the stamp day) and wipe the scrub itself down with it after I am done stamping for the day....it helps cut down on some of the build up a bit.

I use my stamp n scrub for all inks and I wash the pads every now and then. It usually takes several cleanings over a couple of days to get all the ink out of the pads. After I hand wash with some dish soap and rinse really well I turn the pads facedown on some paper towels. After three or four times there won't be any residue left on the towels and I know I'm done! Make sure you put a dish towel under the paper towels - the ink can soak through and stain the counter if you don't.

You can also buy scrubby pads in the painting section at Wal-Mart, etc. for dirt cheap.

I just bought the Whisper White Craft ink and it was really messy to clean on the Stampin Scrub and then left a white film on the stamp. Do I need to clean it with wipes before I scrub it?? Thanks Susan for starting this thread!

I've had the best luck with stamping off or using a baby wipe on my stamps BEFORE the scrubber if I have used white ink. That and I am really fussy sometimes some of the white ink comes OFF of the scrub onto my other stamps.

Just another who adores her Stampin' Scrub! I own three!!!

I also bought extras of the refill pads so I can toss 'em in the top rack of the dishwasher and use the others in the meantime. (They can warp, however, due to the extreme heat temp of the hot water)

The size is perfect for cleaning background stamps, AND, if the Scrub is wet, so nice to just snap the case closed.

Like the others mentioned, I usually clean off Craft/Pigment ink with a baby wipe first, and then turn to my Scrub, so I don't gunk it up so fast.

Love love love da' Scrub!
