Tips

Clean-up is easiest if done immediately after you use the stamps. Simply clean with soap and water and use an old toothbrush to get into the crevices. If you cannot or forget to clean the stamp right away spray the stamp with rubbing alcohol and let sit a few minutes. Then clean with soap and water as usual.
