Quick Tip Tuesday: Getting Staz-On Ink Off Acrylic Blocks

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Here's a quick tip for anyone who likes to use stamping on their Cricut projects...

Several months ago I read an article in Creating Keepsakes magazine about getting Staz-On ink off of your acrylic blocks.  I don't know about you, but I always manage to get Staz-On ink on my blocks when I use it!

The secret to removing it?  The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser!!!
I decided to give it a try and it really worked...my blocks look good as new!


The Magic Eraser at work:



*Note:  I used the Magic Eraser on Close To My Heart acrylic blocks, with no harmful results to the blocks.  Different types and brands of blocks may yield different results.

Have a creative day!  :)
