Stamp Cleaner for less!

I find that us crafters spend lots of money ... yes I'm admitting it! So when I can, I like to save money wherever possible because this allows for me to spend it elsewhere!

A while back I was at a craft store just shortly after I began stamping a bit more as I felt that I should invest in some stamp cleaner .... to make a long story short I almost fell over at the price of some of them.  Determined to get away cheaper I went to good ole' google and started searching! I found this recipe and have been using it ever since!

Here it is!

1tsp baby wash ... I got this cheap at Walmart ...

2 tbsp glycerin ... This was also picked up cheap Walgreens on clearance but you can also get it at the craft store in the soap making section.

Finally add 1 cup water ... mix it up well and then put into a spray bottle of some sort for easy use!

I started putting this into gifts for my friends (as there's always some sort of crafting items in our gifts) and they were thankful but confused, that is until they start using it! Now every time they come over to craft they bring their empty bottles for me to fill!

Hope you enjoy my little tip!

Happy Crafting!



  1. Confused cause I didnt know what it was- "oh look its a spray bottle with water in it- thanks!". It made much more sense once we knew what it was! Ha ha ha...

  2. Great tip, I use baby wipes. They work real well also.
