Hmmm, good thing babies have no desire for J-Lo implants. No telling what impact those Lanolin Aloe wipes would have on silicone. Hee Hee

I have a 8 x 8 sq. baking pan, water bottle and heavy blue paper towels in my craft room. I put a folded towel in the pan each time I stamp, squirt on some water and pre-clean my stamps before I use my Stampin Mist and scrubber pads. Occasionally I take the whole scrubber to the laundry room and rinse thoroughly and stand on end to dry. I have the old white scrubber and it even still looks quite white. I do keep wipes in the area so I can keep my hands clean and sometimes I use wipes to clean off the wood if it gets sticky or ink on the label. The heavy blue shop towels work great, never have to rinse anything out, I just toss them in the wastebasket.

I use the huggies natural care so I guess I'm ok.
this is due to chemical reactions. Lanoline is a natural oil from thewool of sheep. Those who knit with natural wools will see that their hands become very soft from the lanolin. Thank G_d our hands are not made of natural rubber. just because something is bad for rubber does not mean it is unsafe adn unhealthy. Any fats and oils, will cause a break down in the stability of natural rubber. The amount of damage is relative to the amount and fequency of exposure to the fats and oils. The mail point is do not over expose your rubber products to harmful variables. Direct sunlight, oils and acids will all be harmful if there is an over exposure. Just like if our bodies are over exposed to choclate chip cookies or whiskey.. there is going to be a breakdown not only on the micro level, but eventually on the level that it can be seen simply by the human eye.

Best of luck,
Markey

I'm not sure if aloe is a fat. As I said long ago, if you have questions just aska pharmasist. Their depth of knowledge is amazing they have far more chemistry and the greatest knowledge of interactions not just of drugs but pretty much anything in regards to chemistry and organic chemistry. Be sure you talk to the Pharmasist not the technician, as nice as they are they do't have the chem background as the actual Pharmasist.

Have great one!

Ditto for me. Let's tell SU to come up with wipes that use Stamp N Mist!

I've never used wipes, but I converted from my scrub to microfiber cloths. (Turquoise, of course, so it matches my stuff!) You can wipe your stamp with it dry, or you can keep the cloth wet while you are working. Both are fine. Some folks keep their microfiber cloth in an old baby wipes container so that it stays wet.


The only time I do anything else is when I work with craft inks or versamark. They require different cleaning.

I wonder if the stamps from 2007 that were cleaned with Baby Wipes with lanolin are around and functioning today?

I bet baby wipes have changed some since this thread was active (2007).

I use Wet Ones, and they are wonderful! Keep one in a little Tupperware cup with lid and reuse it until it's dirty. Works like a charm, and I have some old rubber I've used it on.

I, too, use Wet Ones (sensitive, no fragrance ones...all Wet Ones are alcohol free to my knowledge.)
And I also store mine in little Tupperware containers!!! You are my soul sister in stamp cleaners.
And they do work like a charm. Clean rubber and photopolymer stamps with just a quick wipe and never leave lint on them.
They also don’t get a funky smell if left in the container unused for awhile.
So many things to love about Wet Ones for stamp cleaning!

I've heard too that we should not use baby wipes on stamps. I no longer care to read all those labels and if I won't do it to my car tires I won't use it on my rubber stamps either. I researched early on when stamping on what products are good for rubber and not many out there. Even SU stamp cleaner contains either. ( just ask for an MSDS sheet to see what's in it) Judikins contains another lethal product - solvents. Finally came upon Simple Green Extreme, hard to find in local stores but Amazon sells it. This is not the Simple Green you find in automotive stores but it's the Extreme. It comes in a gallon concentrate. Dilute and spray for inks like pigments and Versafine. This product is used to condition aircraft rubber. It's the only one I've found, is naturally safe and is even safe to use on the MISTI covers that get kind of nasty. Although expensive, about $30.00 a gallon that gallon lasts forever.


If only using dye inks, why not just run it under water? It's more effective than even that chamois which can't clean good enough. Now with the MISTI we have to clean them. I'm OK with stains and still get some but really hate deteriorating my stamps.

Agree that Wet Ones are good- but still I use them so seldom they dry out before I even use a small part of them.

That’s partly why I like Costco’s (Kirkland) - which can be purchased on Amazon too. By pressing the soft container to get air out before snapping the lid shut, they stay wet for ages.

I don’t use baby wipes that frequently any more, preferring a microfiber cloth and water or Stewart/Hero Arts cleaner, so a pack can last for a several months since they’re mainly taken to an occasional class - and they never dry out.

It just dawned on me - when taking a class at an LSS, if my Costco wipes container is fairly full, I don’t want to bring it due to size/weight. So I’ll pull some wipes out, put them in a baggie and press the air out before closing.
Sometimes they aren’t used, or only one is, and when I check them for a class a month or two later, they’re still damp.

So if wipes dry out because of the amount of air in a hard plastic container, maybe putting them in baggie when the box is partially empty will help.
