Question Cooking spray on rubber

Just received my Sincere Salutations and starting to trim the rubber but have a question.
If I spray my scissors with Cooking spray to help cut down on the sticky & to make clean up easier, will this hurt the new rubber for the stamp?

I keep a bottle of old time lighter fluid. It cleans them really well and fast.

I use goo gone on my scissors. It works great.

Default Cooking spray on rubber

I clean my scissors by rubbing hand lotion on the blades and wiping off with a paper towel or napkin. Works great for me.

You can also use Un-Do to clean your scissors. It's in the scrap section. I have used alcohol also. My friend uses goo-gone.

Brillant!!! Normally my demo mounts all my stamps and I never have the sticky mess but not only did I mount my last four sets I just started using my xyron and my scissors were terrible. I bought goop off but it is in the trunk of the car. So I tried the lotion and perfectly clean, I would have never thought of that. Thanks!

Some types of oil based products will break down some types of rubber over time. I don't know if that would happen with the stamps or not. Try acetone to clean your scissors (I like it better than alcohol) and don't risk your stamps.

I've seen using VersaMark on the blades vefore cutting and whty wipe right off. Worth a try and won't hurt rubber.

I hate to say this, (MHO) but I don't think I would use the cooking spray on the the blades. Some of my sheet pans have a gunky build up from using cooking spray on them. It's really gross and tacky and doesn't come off. I wouldn't want that stuff near my stamps! You never know what it could do to the rubber on them.

Default cooking spray on rubber

I use De-Solv-It which works great and I think it is much better and more effective than Goo Gone.

Do not use oil/petroleum based products on your rubber.

I would not advise cooking spray, either.

Several things contribute to the deterioration of rubber, and the most devastatingly quick of all is direct sunlight.

The 2nd worst thing to expose rubber to is oil.

Remember that old advice about condoms . . .
