Craft punches like any tool get worn and dirty. Paper dyes may rub off onto the metal and your punch may start to get dull. Caring for these and other scrapbooking tools will help preserve them and make them last longer.
In order to keep your punches clean and sharp you can punch through wax paper several times, the wax keeps the edges of the punch fresh. Clean your craft punches with rubbing alcohol, which will remove any access stickiness and wash off residue.
