HOW TO: Keep Your Stamps in Good Condition

QUESTION: A customer asked me what is the best way to keep your stamps in good condition.

ANSWER: Keeping your stamps in good condition starts with cleaning your stamps after each use. There are several items that are available to help you keep your stamps clean. Below is a list of these products along with an explanation of use.


  • Reusable
  • Just Add Water
  • Durable
  • No Lint
  • No Chemicals
  • Portable (5″ x 7″)

It is “Simply” easy to use the Simply Shammy for cleaning your stamps. All you have to do is just add water. The Simply Shammy will get stained from cleaning your stamps, but the ink will not transfer to other stamps or your fingers. The Simply Shammy’s 5″ x 7″ design makes it portable, and it fits perfect in a stamp case for use and storage.


  • 2 Removable scrubbing pads
  • Scrubbing pads are washable
  • Folds for easy storage (7″ x 7″)
  • Perfect for cleaning background stamps
  • Use with Stampin’ Mist Cleaner

The Stampin’ Scrub is also easy to use. It is designed to open for access to both scrubbing pads. Spray one side with Stampin’ Mist and leave other side dry. Rubbing the inked stamp on the “wet” side cleans the stamp, then rub the cleaned stamp on the dry side to dry.


  • Cleans ink from stamps
  • Used with Stampin’ Scrub

In addition to cleaning ink from stamps it helps to condition rubber stamps for longer life. For best results use with Stampin’ Scrub (sold separately).

Stazon Cleaner

  • Cleans ink from stamps
  • Conditions Stamp
  • Minimizes staining

NOTE: After use, immediately rinse cling stamps with water to protect the adhesive on the label.

I have and use all of these products. Depending on what type of project I am working on leans me towards using one over the other. If I am doing a single quick project, I may use my Stampin’ Scrub and Stampin’ Mist. If the project uses Stazon, most definitely I am using my Stazon Cleaner. I am happy with using all of these products to keep my stamps clean and help to condition them.
