I'd like to tell you what NOT to buy!

I am a HUGE fan of Studio G!  I love their little stamps!  Their little square inks are 10 times better than ColorBox's cat eyes!  I have never had one fall off and ruin my shirt!
However, their kidz line SUCKS!  The stamps in the container were not harmed in this little project!
See those big darling ink pads?  They have the strangest smell!  Not a big deal right?  As Carlee stamped I piled up the stamps to be cleaned on a plate.  [Her glass lunch plate which is in the dishwasher now, who knows what that will look like.]   
These stamps are so sticky I can not get the ink off!  I think I am going to have to throw them away.  Today I am going to go buy Dawn [Thanks Terry]  I have Palmolive and it's not working even a little! 
My nail brush has been soaking in BLEACH for over 24 hours and it still looks awful.  I had no idea ink could be this sticky.  You should see my fingernails! 
You can't really see the ink that is stuck on the sink.  I am not the best housekeeper on the planet, but I LOVE a sparkling clean sink and I no longer have that. 
I had a 20% off entire purchase for these ink pads.  So I spent a whopping $3.20 to ruin a ton of stuff  LOL
You should buy {ippity} though!  Those stamps ROCK!  :)  You totally knew that was coming right?  ;)  LOL
Thanks for stopping by today!  :)

Thanks for the tip! We do have a lot of those stamps but I never noticed the smell, I will have to go home and smell them! LOL! Santa put them in Luke's stocking two years ago, but we've never tried that ink, Santa brought a different kids washable ink that we didn't have a problem with (I can't remember the brand, I will look when I get home!) I will steer clear of this ink if I see it!!! and I will alert Santa not to put any in Luke's stocking ;)

I have Helmar Remover which should work like a charm. Let me know if you want me to bring it over or you can come over with the stuff if the palmolive doesn't work. Gross!!! I would be furious. LOL I hate messy kids messes let along sticky ones.

bummer! I have some stamps that look similar to those that I got at the Dollar store, but we used our own ink. There is a line of washable ink pads at JoAnns & Hobby Lobby; but BEWARE! they aren't 100% wash off with the first try! Maggie had purple fingers for 2 days last time she stamped!! LOL

LOL! Your sticky ink story reminds me of my neighbor's Crayola colored bubble story. She said they are NOT washable. She said that her and her girls skin was stained for days from those bubbles and that it ruined their clothes. You live and learn, ehh? :)
