Actually, Ms. Mouse, while the friendship survives, stamping together does not. It was something she wanted to try but has decided it's not for her, so the rest of my "babies" are safe... for now.

I guess I learned to ignore the ink that got on everything when I lent my stamps to be used by a group or individual. I still can't understand how they got some of the stamps as gunked up as they did. I swear when they came back they looked like they were antiques and been used for a hundred years! Cleaned off what I could and they still work okay, they just aren't pretty any more.

I'm old enough (70) to know that as long as they still work well, the friendships are more important.

I still often use a diluted mixture of Simple Green in a spray bottle for ordinary cleaning. It works well on most dye and pigment inks and is easy to take to class.

It works, it is simple, and has no bad odor.

Plus Simple Green is safe for all parts of a mounted stamp: rubber, foam & wood! I emailed them years ago to ask.

I chuckle when folks worry about ink on their wooden blocks; I just can't obsess about it since it's often pieces jumping up and knocking my arm or the ink pad or something around so I end up smoshing the ink where I don't want it. Guess it's my choice of having pets trying to enable my hobby!

Like any tool, the ones most preferred are a little beat up and banged around. The ones rescued from pom still stamp fine but they look like tucker chewed them! Of course pieces was just pushing them off the table for fun!
