I use a shallow glass pie dish. Set a sponge of any type in the center. Do not use the scratchy side of any sponge, only the soft side. Pour warm water in the dish about half way up the sponge. I use a mild liquid soap. Place a few drops on the sponge.
I keep this on the table where I do my rubber stamping. This method is great for any type of rubber stamps. I have some that are over 30 years old and they are still in great condition.
I stamp, stamp, stamp, the rubber or foam stamp on the sponge, and rinse in the water in the dish. Keeping a large terry towel beside the pie plate filled with water; then stamp to dry.
NEVER use a scrubbing motion on any stamp, as it will cause it to get sticky, and it won't come off. The only motion to use is the up and down stamping motion.
