Default Cleaning Stamps

What is the best way to clean detailed stamps? In my rush to get Christmas cards done, I left Brilliance ink to dry on my Kinkade stamps. I've tried Stazon cleaner and regular SU Mist, but it's not helping that much!
I know, I know, I shouldn't have been so lazy in the first place!

Not lazy, just busy. If you can get some Ultra Clean, it should work. It cleaned stamps of mine that have been stained. You can get it from many companies, including Papertreyink.com

Do you have any Simple Green? It's available in Home Depot. I use
2 cups distilled water, 2 1/2 tsp Simple Green, and 1/2 tsp glycerine.

You can just use Simple Green and Plain Water, and it should help your stamps. Eileen

Ultra Clean is the greatest...best of any I've used. I also use a cheap, battery-powered tooth brush ( dedicated to cleaning stamps only) for those hard to get to places in some stamps.

Also try letting the Stazon cleaner sit on the stamp for a while to work its way through the dried on ink. Toothbrush idea would help also. I just use a regular medium toothbrush, but the high powered kind would be faster!

I have to say, that's why I clean my stamps as soon as I've stamped with it. Only take a couple seconds.
