If a stamp loses its self-sticking properties, it can be washed with water and mild soap then dried with a paper towel.
To prevent yellowing, do not leave the stamp exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time. Store in a dry, shaded environment.
If you want to keep your stamp “shiny and new,” we recommend cleaning it after each use. Option 1: Gently scrub the mounted stamp with a soft-bristled toothbrush—an old one works just fine—using water and mild soap or baking powder, then rinse and pat dry with a paper or lint-free towel. (I personally use white cloth napkins I bought in a multi-pack at Target.) Option 2: Use Spritzer Rubber Stamp Cleaner. I spray once or twice directly on the stamp, brush, then rinse under a light stream of cold water and dry.
