I know that many of you who follow my blog may already know this, but recently someone on the PTI forums linked us to a blog with a "miracle" stamp cleaner (her terms). I don't know about you, but I get so frustrated sometimes with how brown and icky my stamps get AFTER I clean them with my stamp scrubber from the ink residue and stamp cleaner all left behind. I recently tried using baby wipes instead but didn't really like that option either.
So, after reading about "The Absorber" on this blog, I went out and bought one. Let me tell you, it is wonderful! The absorber "captures" the ink so it doesn't get back onto my stamps as I try to clean them. It is washable! So, when it is old and yucky I can throw it in the washing machine and it is as good as new!
If you don't own a stamp scrubber, that's ok! You can store this in a plastic bag or one of the plastic cases that your stamps came in (if you use TAC or SU! stamps). Then, just take it out each time you need to use it.
If you've tried it, I'd love to hear what you think! If you haven't and you're fed up with the traditional methods of "cleaning" your stamps, try this out! It's about $10 at Walmart or Target and you'll have plenty left over after cutting your pieces!
