HOW TO CLEAN YOUR DATER and
NUMBERING STAMP (not self-inking)
An old toothbrush (you could use a new one if you really want.)
Warm, soapy water or Stamp Cleaner.
PLEASE NOTE: Water won't clean some inks -
you'll need Stamp Cleaner if you're using a special ink.
A rag (don't use a paper towel - it will leave fibers on your newly cleaned stamp)
Some absorbent paper.
The stamp that needs cleaning.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR STAMP:
Put some water or cleaner on the rag.
Press the rag on the bands and hold for about 10 seconds, maybe more.
Put some water or cleaner on the toothbrush (not a lot, you don't want a mess).
Gently rub the bands with the toothbrush to wipe away the dirt.
Press the stamp on to the absorbent paper to get the water or cleaner off the plate.
Hold it there for about 10 seconds while the liquid soaks into the paper.
Turn the each band to expose the next month, day and year or next set of numbers.
Clean the bands, press on the paper, and turn them again.
Keep turning the bands until you're back where you started.
What if I don't have an old toothbrush?
You can use the rag, it just might take a little longer to clean your stamp.
My stamp is still dirty
Some inks won't come off with water or with stamp cleaner.
When that happens, you need to get the heavy-duty stuff:
You need Ink Reactivator. This stuff will work on most inks.
