How Do You Clean Rubber Stamps?

How Do You Clean Rubber Stamps?  When I first started stamping, I didn’t know much about products besides rubber stamps, inks, and card stock. Whenever I needed to clean a stamp, I just ran it under water and pat it dry.  As I became a more experienced stamper, I found out there was more to the maintenance of my stamps. Today, I would like to share this exciting discovery and teach you how to use these products.

Have you ever wondered what is the correct way to clean rubber stamps?  When I first started stamping I just ran my inked up stamps under water while making a BIG MESS.  The ink would just drip off staining the wood and my hands.  Honestly, I hated it.  Then, I discovered the Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist.  These amazing products made it easy to clean ink from my stamps while conditioning them and not damaging the wood.  Join me as I share all the details about these two products and teach you how to clean rubber stamps using them.

  • Holds 2 removable, washable nylon-fiber scrubbing pads that measure approximately 7″ x 7″
  • Large enough to clean background stamps
  • Nonslip rubber gripping feet to help keep it from moving when cleaning rubber stamps
  •  Two symbols are embossed on the inside of the trays.  A water drop image indicates the wet tray; the sun image indicates the dry tray.

  1. I used to use slightly soapy water on a paper towel on a Styrofoam plate to clean my stamps. When I started buying stamps my demonstrator told me the importance of cleaning and conditioning my stamps so I use the Stampin’ Mist and the Stampin’ Scrub.
