How to clean Clear Stamps?

Heylo!

Am not posting any new card but am looking forward for some tips on how to keep my clear stamps tidy and avoid the stickiness at the back to disappear. Some of my clear stamps which i have been using for long are now getting very dirty. since i used the locally bought stamps the Dye is so bad that it has left the stains and a weird texture to the clear stamps also these stamps do not stick back to the packaging anymore and keep slipping on the acrylic block too!

Please help!! I love my stamps and cant imagine losing any of them!!

I will really appreciate any home made tips considering we don't get stamp cleaning mists or pads here in India!

Thank you!!

hey, try using baby wipes/wet facial tissues(if u dont have baby wipes like me:))... they really work for me... though i hve also read that they can be washed with mild soap and water, bt i am nt sure of dat since i hve never tried it myself...

:)hope this helps..

To remove the stains from the stamps you can sue any face wipes cheaply available at your local store.. it works wonders!.. or maybe spray it with mild soapy solution and wipe with a paper towel immediately after use..
For renewing the stickiness on the back of the stamp wash the stamp with mild a bit hot soapy solution and let the stamps air dry.. :)
hugs!

Immediately wipe it off with soft cloth or tissue. I clean mine this way only.

I totally vouch for the baby wipes. Although I do have the stamping mist, I still use the baby wipes all the time...

mild soap and lukewarm water will work wonders and make sure it air dries. the stickiness should be back to what it was..

Hi I use a Stampin scrub from Stampin' up anf there & there stampin mist cleaner but your craft shop should have special cleaner although baby wipes do work well - best wishes Lesley x
