A Little Tip
I have a little tip for you today for cleaning your acrylic blocks. I use a lot of Staz-On Ink, which leaves my acrylic blocks in quite a mess over time. I tried cleaning them with baking soda, which required a lot of elbow grease, but did work...but not as well as this little tip.
I had just cleaned two of my blocks, but remembered to take a photo of these two little ones which I hadn't done yet. It's too bad because my other two blocks I use more often, and they were BLACK!!
I read somewhere that someone used a Mr. Clean Eraser to remove ink from something...so I thought I'd try using it on my blocks.
I couldn't believe how well this worked on the blocks! It took very little time and they came out sparkling clean!! Have a look:
That's four clean blocks on the Mr. Clean package. Impressive, no? I think so!!
Guess who's going to be a staple in my Scrapbooking bag from now on? Mr. Clean!!
Have a good day, and thanks for visiting!!
