Default Scent Free Stamp Cleaner?

Does anyone know of a stamp cleaner without scent added to it? I get terrible migraines from perfumes, but I'm looking for a stamp cleaner to clean some cool very dirty stamps I was given.

Have you tried basic dish soap like original Dawn? I don't recommend anything with added antibacterial properties, but the original blue dawn (watered down) washes most everything well.
Another option (although I'm sure it has an aroma of some kind) is Simple Green. Many people have stated that they use this product, also watered down a good bit, as their preferred method of cleaning stamps.
Aside from this, I remember seeing a video by Jennifer McGuire where she shares some of her favorite cleaners and why she uses them. The shammy in particular is something she uses without a spray, though I'm not sure if it will help you with ink that has dried on.Here's the link
That link will take you to the portion of the video where she starts discussing the different cleaning tools.

I saw your post and thought I would share this video I created with The Brutus Monroe stamp cleaner.
This stuff is awesome. I too suffer from Migraines and can't have smelly stamp cleaner. The cleaner is non toxic and works like a dream! My husband has a business where he does custom work on stainless steel cups. one of the orders was wrong (the client approved the proof but when the cups were delivered they realized their error) We thought we were going to have to eat the cost of that order. But I decided to try the stamp cleaner to remove the heat transferred design that nothing else would remove. It was like magic! It removed the transferred design and we were able to reprint the order for them. I can truly say this stuff is awesome.

Fl_beachbum made some excellent suggestions. I am allergic to perfumed products, sometimes they make me sneeze but mostly they make me nauseous. Think morning sickness all my life.


I use Simple Green not only to clean stamps but around the house as well. It's a natural product not artificially made with added perfumes so I am able to use it without a problem. I am also able to use Judi-kins stamp cleaner for really tough stains. While it does smell, it seems to be alcohol/chemical not perfume so it doesn't bother me.


I just purchased the "shammy" so the jury is still out but so far it looks to be a good clean as you go option. I doubt it would work on non-water based dried ink stains but I have adopted a "who cares" attitude for those stains. My stamps don't have to be perfect, they just need to stamp cleanly without unwanted color from a previous project.


I hope you are able to find something that works for you. Worrying about scent triggers just plain stinks

Thank you for the information about Simple Green. Does anyone know if it's safe on Photopolymer stamps

Hi. I make my own. Eight ounces of distilled water, one tablespoon vegetable glycerine and one tablespoon Baby shampoo. I'm sure you can use any unscented shampoo. First time I made it I used regular hair shampoo and it worked just fine. Absolutely safe on all
my stamps. Put shampoo and glycerine in spray bottle and fill with the water. Done.
