How to Cleaning Your Clear Blocks

How to Cleaning Your Clear Blocks.

     I don’t know about you but my clear blocks get so dirty so here is how I clean mine.

1. If you are just using photo polymer stamps then you can just run your blocks under warm water and dry them with a cloth.
2. If.your stamps are even dirtier you can use hand sanatizer to clean them and then rinse with water and dry.
3. But if you are like I am and add adhesive to your stamps, then you know that you have to clean your blocks all the time. What I do is us stazon cleaner to get all the junk off and then whip them with a damp paper towel and then dry them off.
Hope this helps in keeping your blocks clean.
Always remember bring joy through sending others hand stamped cards.

I had posted before that hand sanitizer can get it off but OMG Stampin’ Ups! stazon cleaner works even better. I just dabbed it on and rubbed with a paper towel, then I washed them with water and dried with a paper towel. They are as clean as the day I bought them. Try it, it works.

Tips & Ideas

Do you hate using glitter and embossing powder because it makes such a mess?
Well I have the solution.
Do all your glittering or embossing and when you are done take a lint roller to take excess off of your projects and your work
Surface. You can use the disposable ones but even better I use a sticky lint roller that you can rinse off and use again.
Enjoy Brenda

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
