Do you ever get a stamp pile up on your desk? I do.
The bad this is that they are all still inked and getting it all over the place. I just get so into my projects that I toss them into the pile to clean off later--and then I totally regret it!! ugh! Time to break out the baby wipes and put on a movie! get to cleaning!!!!

I will wipe them off with a baby wipe if they are still very inky- but most times--I just toss them in the basket---or they stay on one of my many blocks until I decide I am done with it for this project! I feel your pain!

I am still dealing with my pile up and started creating it - early last year. I now have them all cleaned and sorted, but they haven't seen there home for many a moon.
I currently am not adding to it - at least am not adding more.
So understand your challenge.

I have always been told to clean them right after use and that is what I do. I n ever thought of putting them in a basket. zipper28

When I'm working on a project that uses several stamps they do end up in a dirty pile. When I'm ALL done i clean them all at the sink. I do have a scrubber and wipes which I tend to use if using one or two stamps. Just works better for me this way.
|Posted: 11/29/2012 10:26:13 PM|I throw them in a pile, while I am working on a project, and then try to clean them up at the end of the session but the last couple of weeks I've been working on a lot of Christmas cards one right after the other and had a huge pile of 'used' stamps.
Finally today I stopped and got rid of a lot of junk that was on the table and got the stamps cleaned and put away. I can see the surface of my table again.
