    They use an eraser on them to renew them, before they start stamping with them.

    I found it....

    the idea of conditioning stamps is when you are using a stamp made of a harder rubber that over time sitting on a shelf may be a bit dry. Using an eraser softens up the rubber, but so does stamping a few images on scrap paper. If a stamp is really dry either from new or from cleaners you can oil it with olive oil or another veg oil, let the stamp sit for 15 min with the oil on it then clean it with mild soap. I use baby shampoo in a spritzer bottle diluted with a water, About 2/3 shampoo, 1/3 water. As far as not getting a good image, sometimes the cushion or foam on a stamp is just not good enough quality, try making a pad out of several sheets of newspaper to put under your paper, use a mouse pad, or my favorite and seriously cheap is a piece of craft foam!
