I don't dilute the awesome cleaner. I use the yellow all purpose cleaner. You can rinse it off afterwards, but I just grab it and spray. I once grabbed a bottle and sprayed my face. I don't recommend it on cleaning your eyes. YYYEEEEOOOOWWWW! I've been using this to clean stamps for several years now with no problem.

I buy a stack of wash cloths at WalMart and use those for stamp cleaning.

Oh, Wayne, Kroeger owns Smith's and several other markets. In California they own Ralph's too.

That would save you scrubbing, but how do you deal with the splatter? Getting the ink off the rubber & all over the bathroom isn't much of a trade off.

I keep it low in the sink & have a small stream of water going so if it gets too 'wild' I can splash down the sink quickly. I like the El TB system for my more detailed stamps since it gives just enough aggitation but isn't too hard on the surfaces. Just remember to not use your current brush, have a dedicated stamp brush. I had a friend bring my TB out once and it had the stamp brush on & she asked if I was eating too much licorice again.

There are some hand held power toothbrushes that are fairly inexpensive. Might be worth a try for stamps. Now that I have more information I may just try that awsome cleaner. Imagine that used with the TB! Might just be great and I could do it in the bottom of the laundry tub to control the spatter.

This pad is soft and u can bend it every wich way. And easy to rinse off too.
Couldn't do without one anymore!
And the Clear Stamp cleanser from Ranger smells SoooOo good!!!
U have to get it if u have lots of clearstamps
It's like candy! wanna eat it... but that would be bad? *lol*

Yep, now that u say it, I guess I'm kind of like on an assembly line when I cleanse my stamps! Maybe I worked in a factory in another life!
Most of my stamps doesn't appear to have been used! Think that's because I never let the ink dry in the rubber before I 'scrub' it off. I hate lending my rubbers to friends, 'cause I always have to clean them again even if they think it looks ok...
I even have a habit of taking 5 or more rubberstamps, and stampin up a lot of images, not only one of each, when i first need just the one motif!
I keep the stamp-motifs I print up inside organizers, with labels of this and that stampcompany, easy accessable
So I only once in a while need to do the assembly-line-stamp&clean-thing
