I have a metal stamping jewelry kit that I got this past Christmas, and I absolutely love it! So much fun and the pieces turn out so nice! But I am having some problems with the stamping block and stamps..... they are getting rusty! I keep them in their own box with no moisture, so I don't know why this is happening.

Are there any other metal stampers here who can share some tips with me about properly storing my stamps so this doesn't happen? Also, how can I remove the current rust?

Thanks! Smiley

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Soak the items in a plastic tub of vinegar for awhile then rub it off - I like microfiber cloths - soft, but has friction for scrubbing.  Then oil the tools when storing.  If you are in a very humid area, I have heard rubbing with chalk to keep them dry works, but I have not tried that.  I would wonder about keeping those packages of silica which are used to keep things like pills, dried good, clothing dry in packaging may help too if there is humidity.  I use those for keeping items dry in packages myself, like matches.
