DIY Stamp Cleaner

So, I observe a certain company sells a stamp cleaning kit thingy.

Thinks *But I'd rather spend my money on stamps*

My solution:

Go to Mitre10 and get 2 speed brushes: $16.88 x 2
Go to Payless Plastics and get 1 spritzer bottle: $3.60
Go to Foodtown and get a Huggies Wipes Travel container: $2.70 (I think)
Total: $40.06

OK - so it only saved me something like $.300 but I thought it was a good idea at the time.

I put a very dilute solution of my Next Generation detergent in the spritzer. It works fine.

I actually was looking for some softer speed brushes that have a sticky back but they didn't have any in the store I went to. I was going to stick some plastic to the back so I could wash the pads when needed. The ones I got can be washed just fine, but they have a hard aluminium backing. I would have preferred the softer ones.
