Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I am interested to know what everyone thinks about whether to clean their stamps with a cleaning solution and scrubby or just stamp it clean? I've read articles that support both sides, and I've tried both ways but I kind of lean to using the scrubby. Or is there another cleaning answer? I've invested a lot of money in my stamps and want to protect them. So, I'm wondering what everyone else does? Thanks!

Hi Georgene.  Well let's see....I've had many of my stamps for about 4 years when I first started stamping and I've done both types of cleaning with no issues to any of my stamps.  However I have to say....I rarely actually clean my stamps anymore.  I usually  use Black Memento because I color my images so I just leave them and they have suffered no damage from doing that either.  I think stamps are pretty tough!! LOL

Personally, I use baby wipes to clean my stamps. If I use Stazon I use the cleaning solution, other than that baby wipes work fine for me.

I use baby wipes. If you buy the package, cut them in half and then place in a close container to keep them moist. The clean and seem to keep like new. Sometimes I use the double cleaning pad that is available here. but mostly use baby wipes. Especially on the clear stamps. Just me I guess, but I always want them clean. and not take the chance of the colors mixing. OH! Make sure they are dry before putting away.


I use the stamp cleaning solution that Michaels sells and some paper towels to clean my stamps and have had no problems doing so.

Hugs, Valerie

I have used wet wipes for years, and have had no problems with them.  I cut a small section off at a time to make them last longer, and they clean the stamps really well, and last a long time.  I am with everyone else, I want to take good care of my stamps, and they seem to do a good job!
