I bought an acrylic block and some clear stamps to use on it but the stamps are losing their static cling (or whatever it is that holds them to the block). How do I fix this? I bought it all right before moving here so, to save room in my suitcase, I took it out of the packaging and threw it all away so I can't refer to that anymore lol

Hopefully someone can tell me how to fix this! Thanks!

Edited to make my message clear lol

Are the stamps rubber, or clear? If they're clear, you may just have to wash them with a little soap and dry them well. If they're rubber, you will probably have to buy a backing sheet that has both a cushion and a layer that's designed to stick to the block. Generally, rubber doesn't stick well to those acrylic blocks.

Oops. I don't know why I said "rubber" because they're clear.

I tried washing it in water and thought maybe that's why they lost their cling. Maybe not though... Hmm

Try using a little dish soap on them, and making sure that the back doesn't feel "gritty" in any way. Also, make sure your acrylic block is clean. Sometimes mine gets a little inky and needs a good scrub to make sure it's not the part that's not sticky.

I got some clear stamps and they say to wash them with soap and water to restore the cling.  If that doesn't work you could always glue it to something to and make it into a regular stamp.
