Cleaning Foam Stamps

How do you clean foam stamps during a stamping party for reuse? Baby wipes?

Most craft stores sell a spray stamp cleaner for rubber stamps. Using a cleaner other than one recommended for stamps may dry out the rubber and possibly ruin the stamps. Check the ingredients carefully, because some do contain alchohol and that will really dry out your stamps.

To save on the amount of cleaner used when when spraying each stamp I use a stamp cleaner pad which is a large pad with bristles. You spray a small amount of the stamp cleaner on the bristle pad and simply rub the stamp over the brisltes to clean. Then I blot onto a piece of plain white paper or paper towel to ensure that all the ink is off the stamp before using with another color.

Some specialty inks like those for fabric or scrapbooking may have different cleaning instruction, so I would check the instructions for cleaning methods.

Hope this helps...
