    How do you clean your wood mounted stamps? and.. How do you clean your clear stamps? What brand of cleaner do you use? What works best for you?

      I don't use wood mounted.
      For my clear stamps I use a baby wipe and rinse under warm water.

      "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

          I let Kathi borrow mine, she does a wonderful job!!!!!
          Seriously, I know I'm bad. I use water and one of those scrubby pad things and I'm afraid that I don't get all of the ink off.

                I'm not really good at cleaning mine either. Archival ink stains my wood mounted stamps so I just keep stamping on scrap paper until an image doesn't come off. My clear stamps I can normally just wipe them clean with a paper towel.

                  I only clean mine every once in a while. I use baby wipes when I do. What I really need to clean is my acrylic blocks. They are useless because they are covered in black ink, so I can't see through them. I think I heard that you can use those Mr Clean Magic Erasers to clean those, so maybe I should do that.

                      tut tut tut ladies…….

                      Now, your stamps are your babies. You gotta treat them with love. lol

                      I must admit.. I clean my stamps right after I use them.
                      Acrylic stamps – when I use dye inks – a wet cloth to clean them up. when I use Stazon or Archival inks on my arclylic stamps I firts ink them up.. let it dry for about 10 seconds then add another layer of ink and stamp my image (saw this tip in a prima video tut) then immediately whipe my stamp off with a wet cloth. Sometimes when they are really yuckie I wipe some Stazon-cleaner onto my craft sheet and slightly touch it with my stamps. then rinse.

                      For my wood mounted stamps I use the rub it scrub it, when I used dye inks. when I used a solvent ink I use Stazon cleaner OR blending solution.
                      The last one I use also to clean my acrylic blocks.

                      I heard that Hero Arts has a perfect cleaner for both acrylic stamps and wood mounted. Anyone tried it yet?

                      DITTO! I do the exact same thing! I'm bad..bad..bad.. 🙁 (

                      Usually, it's baby wipes to clean all my stamps. However, if I'm using metallic inks I'll actually get out the bottle of stamp cleaner to get it off. And Staz-On requires their stinky cleaner. I used to be a lot more OCD about my stamps looking brand-new, but life goes on and it took up too much time I could be crafting!
