        I have made this several times in the past -- IT IS ABSO AWESOME!!! I read to make another bath but am having problems find the "Simple Green". Can anybody out there suggest an alternative? I'd be really grateful!!

        You can almost always find Simple Green at Lowes & Home Depot. It's always in the cleaning isle. You can also get it on Amazon.

        I use baby shampoo in place of the simple green. It is gentle on the stamps, removes ink, and smells good. I also add a couple of teaspoons of glycerine to keep the stamps from drying out.

        This recipe is great. I must try it. I have a Stampin Up stamp cleaner gadget but it will be much cheaper to make up this recipe.

      Try it with some grated orange or lemon peel or essential oil for a nice fragrance. I used to buy the orange scented pumice hand cleaner...

      MYO Terra Cotta Flower Pot Witch

      I saw this witch on pinterest but it didn't list a source or any directions, so I'm kind of going by the seat of my pants on how exactly to make this!

      First you need a 4" Pot, painted purple
      a 3"...
