Default Stamp Cleaner "Putty" or "Gel"

Has anyone heard of a "putty" that you can use to clean your stamps? An acquaintance told me that there was something that had the consistency of, well, snot, that you could put on your stamp and pull off to clean it.

I have never heard of that! I would, however, HIGHLY recommend UltraClean! I buy a lot of used stamps and they are often really stained. I had some that were so badly gunked up that I was afraid to use them with light colored inks. I could not budge the grunge even with Stazon cleaner which is solvent based.

I spritzed UltraClean directly onto the rubber and went at it with a soft toothbrush and the rubber looked brand new five minutes later!

It was also developed for use on clear stamps, so it is totally safe for everything.

Not affiliated, just very happy with it!

I love Ultra Clean too... this just seemed like it would be really convenient sometimes.
Thank you!

Back in high school, we used something like that for cleaning typewriter keys (yes, I'm really dating myself here). It was like a blob of putty on a handle, and you pressed it onto the letters (not really the keys, the metal part that hit up against the paper) and it would pull out all the fuzz and bits of ink from the ribbon. I did a little googling, and it was called "Magi Kleen" - but they don't make it anymore. Not much demand, since the few typewriters still around mostly use correctable ribbon and not the old nylon kind.

Oh my gosh, I remember that from high school typing class. Yes, typing, not "keyboarding" as they have now, LOL! Showing my age for sure.

Was she talking about Silly Putty? It takes off ink. I remember imprinting newspaper articles in it as a child! I have no idea what it'd do to stamps though.

I found a putty cleaner that you can use to clean your electronic goodies here: http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/gear/b88d/
Seems like it might be similar to the typewriter putty.

I'm going to say if no one on Splitcoast knows about this stamp cleaner, it DOESN'T EXIST.

I initially purchased the small 2 oz. spray bottle and liked it so much I got the big refill bottle. If you have your own spray bottle, you could just buy the large refill, much less expensive that way!

I purchased mine at Ellen Hutson, as she was the only one who sold the big 8 oz. refill bottle at the time. Since then, 7 Kids College Fund carries it and they sell it at a discount with free shipping over $75.

I just saw on this thread:
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...d.php?t=497482

that Suave Coconut Shampoo cleans off even Stazon and is cheaper than stamp cleaner...

Not sure if you were looking for something that you didn't have to use water with though...

LOL Coincidentally, we used it several months ago on my daughters (long) hair and it definitely cleans, but it caused really bad tangles, so we don't use it anymore - wish I would have kept it now! The coconut conditioner did not condition well so I can't recommend the conditioner for hair either.
