Default Dry ink pad? Simple solution!

This blew my mind! Took a stamping class from Dyan Reaveley which was packed with interesting ideas but most of all was a simple trick. When your ink pad starts to run out you either buy a new one or buy a re-inkerů right? Well, what if I told you there is a simpler and cheaper alternative?

Ranger Essentials Ink Refresher (no, I don't work for Ranger or sell it)

Dyan says most ink pads do not run out of ink, they actually dry out. This product restores the stuff that keeps an ink pad juicy. It's a spray bottle and you only need a spritz or two. I went home and did up all my stamp pads. OMG! So easy, so cheap, no mess.

INK PADS ONLY. Not permanent or pigment pads.

If you live in a dry climate this product is an absolute must! If you have a drawer full of ink pads that have languished for a very long time, this will (probably) restore your collection. There aren't a lot of stamping products that I'm crazy about but this is one I recommend without reservation.

I think you mean it is for dye ink pads only. Makes sense. Should be great on those rainbow pads.

I'll have to try it, I buy a lot of ink pads at garage sales.
