I have a small spray bottle about 6 oz. I just guessed the amount of each product. It seems to work fine. I don't make a large batch, worried it could go bad. I use
distilled water
rose glycerin
unscented liquid castile soap (Dr Bronner's)

I believe the "recipe" I have calls for baby wash, distilled water and rose glycerin. My question is where do I find rose glycerin? Can't seem to find it! Would definitely like to make this! Does anyone know if it lasts a while? I would like to mix it and put it in the refill bottle from SU, then just fill my smaller spray bottle as needed?

Thanks for the help! Happy stamping,
Connie

Connie, I believe what you need is Rose water (for scent) AND glycerin.

True and I found both at my health food/ vitamin store. I make a 1/2 gallon at a time it and it keeps just fine for several months.

I have found that baby wash has a nice enough scent on its own, so you can always skip the rose water! Distilled water means that it won't start to deteriorate, so you can make a large amount and decant as needed.

Well I'm about to try making the stamp cleaner. Just got back from the store with my glycerin, water, baby magic bath and baby oil. While I was at it I also picked up a bottle of Simple Green. Hoping to be experimenting this afternoon. Thanks to everyones input on this subject. I'm also going to be trying the blender solution too!!! So excited!!!

I've been making the glycerin, distilled water, baby wash and rose water for years. It really works well and stays good forever if you used distilled water. I made a huge batch a year ago and it is still good. Just pour it into a little spray bottle from the large container when I need it.

in 2006 Dorothy E posted wanting a recipe for stamp cleaner, she had searched and couldn't find it that was post #1. Here it is 2014 and this thread is still going strong and has a 5 star rating! If your new to this sight please drift back and read the posts that brought us to this point. So many informed persons chiming in with good advice, some great questions and some even better answers that said here is a recap of the sought after recipe.

2 cups distilled water
2 TBS glycerin
2 TBS rose water
1 TBS baby wash

Thanks Anita. As I posted on here many times; I have been using this recipe for years and still love it. And as long as you use distilled water, it keeps forever. My last batch is almost a year old and is still good.

One thing I found is that the stamps and the clear stamp blocks get an oily film on them after using the glycerin, distilled water, baby wash recipe. Did I do something wrong in mixing them?

I use it and don't get a film. Maybe check your ingredients to make absolutely sure you got the right stuff? And then remake a new batch using the original recipe and see if you still have the problem. Beyond that advice, someone more expert than me is going to have to take over.

OK, I just put a couple drops of mild liquid dish washing soap on my stamp scrubber with some warm water, and it has always worked great. I rinse out and dry the scrubber after each use (daily I mean, not with each stamp) Please tell me why I should go buy some glycerin, distilled water and other stuff if I don't seem need to need it ? My stamps aren't getting damaged, thanks.

Ginny, keep doing what your doing, those of us that do all the buying and mixing are doing what we have always done. I know it's a little nutty but years ago when all we had was the red rubber stamps they could become hard and unuseable unless they were cleaned and treated..hence glycerin. The inks we used and still use are hard on those type of stamps some of us still have many prized stamps that require TLC good old dish soap dosen't do it. Will probably use the cleaner on all stamps both old and the newest of new out of habit and the belief that my stamps are getting the best care I can provide. Just don't use anything with de-greaser, alcohol, perfume harsh removers. Hope this helps. Have a happy stamping week!

This mixture conditions the stamps to red rubber from drying out and getting large cracks or from those tiny little fissure cracks in the acrylic stamps.

I believe Paws to Stamp was refering to the flat paint pads that some people use as edgers. They have all different sizes now but the most common one people know about is the "Ceiling Edger" size is about 3" x 4" and it has little roller wheels that you place on ceiling where wall and ceiling meet and glide it along the wall to create a smooth straight line defining the ceiling white from the color of the wall. They now come in larger size pads for painting the walls too. They are usually white and stampers are using these lately to clean their stamps instead of the Black case Stampin up pad because they are inexpensive. Hope I didn't confuse you more. LOL

Thanks for letting me know!! My scrub pad is worn out and I was looking for something else to use instead of buying the one from SU. I think I will give the paint pads a try.

I made this recipe Rose Water, Distilled Water and Baby Wash years ago and I am still using it. Not a problem with it.

Heart Stamp cleaner

If you have a organic type store, mine is Natural Grocers, they have a Vegetable Glycerine. It is 16 Oz. for around $6-7. Lindsay Weirich, the Frugal Crafter has a video with a bunch other uses for Glycerin. I can't post the url, I haven't posted enough. Go to her blog thefrugalcrafter.wordpress

Would baby shampoo work? I already have some of that.

I have been using this recipe for many years and love it. The rose water is really just for scent. The glycerine conditions the rubber stamps. I also use it on my clear stamps with no problem My current batch is over a year old and still works great. Distilled water is important so it doesn't turn cruddy.

Rose Angel. I've been using a paint pad for a few years now, it works great, and you would be able to pick them up in your Dollar stores.
This is what it looks like: Front & back view.


TinaBee, I'm pretty sure Baby Shampoo would work fine, I doubt there is actually too much difference between the two products. Possibly the shampoo doesn't foam up as much, I'd guess.

I agree! I like the way the 'fibers' reach into the teeny crevices & corner points on rubber stamps and PP stamps too. I also keep a clean & dry one handy for when I'm just wiping off ink with a "spongy cloth" during a color change. Then the rubber is dry for the next ink pad & doesn't contaminate the pad with water & other ink.
