When you've been using water-based ink, you can just clean it off with water! The best ways of doing this are to buy a special stamp cleaning pad (one brand of these is Stamp It) that you dampen with water. If you can't find one of these in your stamping shop, then just fold up a nice thick paper towel and dampen it with water. Place it on a plastic plate and clean you stamps by "patting" them onto the paper towel.
