  18. Hi Laura! I took your class at Craftsy and I have a question about some information that you shared there. What is the name of the cloth that you use to clean your stamps? I can’t remember or find where you mentioned it in the class. 🙂 I remember that you get it in a the automotive section. Baby wipes are really messing up my stamping! Thanks for the great class and your help. 🙂
