Tips and ideas

Do you use use clear mount stamps? Do your clear blocks get messy?
Well to clean them use a paper towel and some hand sanitizer. Put the sanitizer on your block and clean with a paper towel. When it looks clean put It under the water to wash off the hand sanitizer. And WALLA you have a clean block.
You can also use this technique to clean your craft mat.
Brenda 🙂
