How to Clean Rubber Stamps From StazOn Ink

StazOn solvent ink by Tsukineko is one of the most versatile crafting inks on the market. StazOn is perfect for rubber stamping on glass, plastic, metal, foil and other nonporous and semiporous surfaces. Once a stamping project is complete, you'll need to use specially formulated cleaners to take this hard-to-remove ink off your rubber stamps.

Things You'll Need:

  • Stampin' Mist spray cleaner by Stampin' UP!
  • Stampin' Scrubber by Stampin' UP! 
  • StazOn All Purpose Cleaner
  • Old toothbrush
  • Clean rag

    Using a Stamp Scrubber

  1. 1
    Spray Stampin' Mist cleaner on wet side of Stampin' Scrub or Double-Sided Stamp Scrubber (indicated by embossed raindrops). Scrubber should be moist, but not soaked.
  2. 2
    Rub stamp vigorously on wet side of scrubber until clean. Foam will form on the stamp and scrubber but will not damage the stamp.
  3. 3
    Rub stamp on dry side of scrubber (indicated by embossed umbrella). Press firmly so bristles reach into any crevices. Continue until stamp is dry.

    So what is Staz on pad ?

     Well, it’s a linen-fabric covered ink pad that holds a solvent-based ink that works on non-porous surfaces. Unlike a pigment-based ink, which only works on porous surfaces such as paper, chipboard, and wood, the StazOn ink will work on plastic, aluminum, shrink plastic, glass, vellum and more.

    Here are a couple of pointers when using Staz On:
    • Make sure you keep the lid on when not in use. Solvents dry quickly.
    • Buy the re-inker. For the above reason, it’ll get dry quickly but re-inking restores your pad.
    • Don’t expect it to be super juicy. Solvents just aren’t.
    • Not the best pad for rough surfaces, because it isn’t super-juicy!
    • Be careful when stamping on glossy surfaces. Too much pressure and your stamp will slide.
    • Use a shot of a heat gun to make sure your ink is set on plastics or glass.
    • StazOn will scratch off of some surfaces, so seal with crystal effects.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
