Rust stains.... But no rust?
« on: January 19, 2012, 06:51:12 PM »
I'm working on cleaning my newest pony purchases, and I've come across a bit of an... odd issue.

One of the ponies has what look like rust stains in her mane. But when I popped her head off, she's sparkly-clean inside, NO signs of rust whatsoever. I've heard the glue inside her head can yellow and stain the hair, but this staining is definitely orange rather than yellow.

I believe the pony's hair was originally pink; would that give yellowed-glue stains an orange tint?

Is there a way to de-orangify her hair?

You can try some rust remover.  I hope that works!

My camera's lousy with detail shots, so no picture, but it's kinda similar to that, Zennabug. Although in my case, the discoloration is actually ON the hair and I don't see anything at all on the plastic itself.

Weird!  Have you scrubbed her hair yet?

I would try washing the hair with regular soap/shampoo and water and if it doesn't come out you could try a little bit of whiting toothpaste or rust remover.
