Default YOU already own the best stamp cleaner ever!!!!

Olive oil! Works even better than the Ultra Clean! Amazing and safe for your stamps. Just wash after with mild soap and water. My demo told me this last night and I just tried it. It even removes Stazon!

I had heard this recently but haven't tried it. I have some stamps I bought used from somebody (sight unseen) and they were pretty stained. I've tried all the stuff I have and they were better, but it didn't get everything to my liking. I go through olive oil like there's no tomorrow, so I'll have to try it - always have it on hand.

That's interesting. Do you just rub the stamp on the EVOO (like Rachel Ray---extra virgin olive oil) and rub the EVOO off with a paper towel or something?

Does it even take off the basic black? I have no trouble removing stazon with the stazon cleaner, but basic black and I don't get along...

TFS. I also read on a different thread that baby wipes (not anti-bacterial with the alcohol, but baby wipes ie: Pampers, Huggies, etc.) will completely clean your stampin' scrub! Haven't tried it yet, but the other posters could not believe it!! I'm going to try both techniques this weekend! LOVE SCS!!

Hmmmm. Interesting. Since oil, even vegetable oil, is well known to deteriorate rubber, I personally wouldn't use this as a cleaner, but, who knows? Mebbe with such limited explosure, it doesn't have a chance to do any damage?

I was just thinking this. I don't want to try this until I know for sure it won't damage my stamps!!

I love the Ultra Clean. I'm not sure it's an oily base, but maybe a higher glycerin content. Just how it "feels" to me when I touch it. And since it's marketed specifically for rubber stamps I feel pretty comfortable that it's not a oil base. Plus is cleans off so nicely, no residue like I would expect with an oil!

I've often used liquid Dr. Bronner's castile soap (most times you find it in the health food store...in various fragrances or unscented) on my stamps...castile soap is very gentle and made with olive oil. Here is a link with more information on it....

I use a watered down Simple Green -- works so great. I have not tried it on Staz On yet though.

I checked with a friend who owns a rubber stamp company. She said there is no reason olive oil would hurt stamps unless you stored them in it for years. She said scrubbing them up now and then (not every time you use them) with olive oil followed by a soap and water rinse won't hurt them a bit. She said the only thing that really is anything the average stamper has to worry about is UV rays on the rubber.

WOW! I just tried this and it really worked great! Used DAWN dishwashing liquid after to get rid of the oil. I tried it on one of my Staz-On stained acrylic blocks and it didn't work for that tho

I agree Ultra Clean all the way for me! I also don't think it is an oily feel but more like you said perhaps the glycerin....

I am on my second spray bottle of UltraClean. I cleaned up my own Stazon stains, got Stazon off my shorts (!), and have done alot of trading, and some came with stains.

It is 4.99 at Archivers. The bottle is not that big.

Does anyone know if there is a larger refill bottle anywhere?

Interesting indeed, Julie! I've never heard this -- if that were the case, I'd think our tires would be destroyed pretty quickly just by rollin' on down the road. Do you mind sharing the source of your information on oil's damaging effects on rubber? TIA!

Happy trails....

Have you tried rubbing alcohol on the acrylic block? I've had pretty good luck using alcohol to remove stains that other cleaners don't work on. Make sure you wash the acrylic block thoroughly after using alcohol, though -- I learned the hard way that alcohol can cause some 'clouding' on some acrylics if it's left on for long periods. HTH!

Happy trails....

I have a friend whose husband is a chemist. He said that certain types of petroleum products will deteriorate LATEX. He said the kind of rubber on stamps and tires is completely safe with olive oil.

Chuckle! Well, there's the 'ole condom/vaseline issue that's been around for quite some time . . . Sorry--didn't know how to put that one "delicately"--no java yet this a.m

I don't have a definitive single source, actually. Ever since I started stamping over 12 years ago, I was told, and read about, in the care of rubber stamps to always avoid oil (oil based cleaners, etc.), and sunlight as these 2 things were the most damaging to rubber. Given the condom theory, it made sense to me! LOL! I took it to heart and never questioned it!

I've also read articles, just here and there, about the effects of oil destroying the rubber gaskets in home canning issues, etc.

So, that also further confimed the "avoid oil" theory to me.

Somewhere, I read that lanolin in some baby wipes causes the rubber on stamps to "harden" over time. Is it true? I dunno, but it's easy enough to avoid, so I figure why chance it?

I'm not a chemist, so perhaps the above things I've read and been told about oil + rubber, are indeed just "urban legend"?

At any rate, I personally will probably never try the olive oil as stamp cleaner; I have an aversion to putting food products on my stamps ever since I learned about the caramelized condensed milk technique.

But, that's ME. I'm kinda weird that way. chuckle!

Caramelized condensed milk technique? With stamping? HUH? This sounds messy!

Okay I just tried this. IT WORKS GREAT!!! I had a stamp that had about 4 years worth of dried Staz-On, I know I know, but i mainly ink black anyway so i don't always clean certain stamps. Well I rubbed some EVOO on the stamp let it sit for a minute and then used my little scrubby brush and WOW!! the rubber image is pink again, I can't believe it. It works better than Ultra Clean. Of course I will only use this on my really badly stained stamps since olive oil "ain't cheap"
Thanks so much for the tip

My grandson was stamping with me the other day and stuck his arm on my Basic Black pad. I tried washing it off with soap and water and it didn't touch it. I thought I'd try the olive oil, and almost all of it came off without too much rubbing, and it didn't irritate his skin.
I haven't tried it on my stamps yet, but, since I'm almost out of cleaner, I'll be trying it soon!

I'm sure if you do a search on google or even here at SCS, some deets on that will show up. From what I understand, some folks either hit it, or end up with "less than desirable" results. And, in some cases, it has led to an infestation of bugs, attracted to the stuff on the card.

Hey, everybody! Here's the scoop, direct from the Resident Chemical Engineer (40+ years in the oil-refining business) -- *petroleum-based* oils WILL, over time, do serious damage to non-synthetic (genuine, latex-based) rubber. Plant-based oils WILL NOT cause any harm to same. This is assuming that if we're cleaning stamps with olive (or other plant) oil, we're gonna be *sure* we get it all off before we try to get ink to stick to them, aren't we? (That old oil+water thing...) So, Julie -- I think it's safe to say we're both right on this issue. Thanks for your response!

Happy trails....

Sue

Hmmm I think I will still spend the six bucks use Ultra Clean (something created to clean stamps) and not deal with the hassle or the risk of Olive Oil! LOL

I was also just told by a doctor friend that anything that is safe for you to swallow is not going to hurt rubber. He said your stomach lining is very delicate and that this is one way to decide if something can hurt things or not. On the other hand, if you eat Vaseline, you are going to be in for a world of hurt LOL!
