Question Stazon Question

I just got my first stazon pad, and I can't wait to try it. I got all ready to stamp a tile for a magnet when I read the instructions that said I need stazon cleaner for my stamps. Is that really necessary or can I use something else?

I find that if I clean the stamps right away, they usually come clean. I use "simple Green", and that works pretty well. I do have the Staz On Cleaner, and use that to get the rest of the stain off, if necessary. Eileen

Hi. I use StazOn stamp cleaner. Any other solvent ink cleaner will work. I never tried water based one solvent inks. Also, Ranger puts out an all purpose stamp cleaner. Good Luck

Ultra Clean / TAC Stamp cleaner will work too. Good luck!

Baby wipes work great, too...just make sure you wipe immediately!

I just use regular cleaner. The rubber sometimes stays stained, especially between the creases- but it doesn't stamp black anymore. I'm not really one to care if my stamps are stained as long as they still work.

I use my staz-on for pretty much everything now (I just love the way images look with it!!) and I use my SU! Stampin' Mist with the scrubber, and they clean up just fine!

Don't know why, but the VersaMark pad makes a great stamp cleaner, too. Once you've cleaned off as much StazOn as you can, smoosh your stamp into the VM pad and let it sit for awhile. Then clean as usual.

I have a question about the Stazon Cleaner also. When reading the directions for stamping on unglazed tiles to be used as coasters, one technique said to color the stamped image in put some Stazon cleaner on Q-Tip rub a sharpie marker over it and apply the color with Q-Tip. It looks like watercoloring. I can't find Stazon Cleaner at all ! Any sugestions for a substitute or where I can get the cleaner. Thanks [email protected]
