Time and money saving tip

Do you want to stamp and don’t have the money for stamp cleaner or cleaning pad? Run out of stamp cleaner? You can make your own quick and easy. Take an old towel you don’t use any more and fold it into a square. Then take a spritzer bottle and fill it 3/4 full of water, then add 3 to 4 drops of baby shampoo. ( the travel size is the best to get because you don’t use much). Put in 1 tsp of glycerin ( can be found in the drug store). Put cover on and shake well. Spray on towel ( making Sure you don’t spray yourself HA ! HA!). and clean your stamp by rubbing it back and forth. The shampoo cleans your stamp and the glycerin conditions it.
ENJOY! Brenda
