I beleive Twin Pines of Maine is the one that sells the cleaning products. Anyway, after washing off with dish soap, you can put baby powder on him. That should keep the stickiness away for awhile but you'll have to do it every once and awhile because it will come back. Plasticizer leaking always makes me sad. I really wish there was a way to speed up the breakdown process!
ah that's what it was called! thanks :)

Hehe, no prob. I actually ordered some stuff from them years ago (Remove-zit, Perk and Boost) and had great success. I never tried the stuff that cleans off stickiness and grime though. Probably time to put in another order soon!

You will be best to leave him in the open. Make sure to wipe him down occasionally...baby wipes are good for this...over time and exposure to the air [i.e. not stuck in a sealed bag] the plasticiser will evaporate until it is pretty much all gone - leaving a no longer sticky Quarterback but one "hard" enough to play linebacker in any MLP football team.

id be careful using Remove-zit tho, i heard a while ago that after a while (talking a month or so) itll discolor the plastic.

I've wiped it off with rubbing alcohol before, although as everyone's already said, it comes back. kayveryn, I hadn't even considered soaking ponies in alcohol! If that speeds up the leaking, that might be a good idea instead of having to wait potentially years for it to stop!

You can clean him with pretty much anything mild that you'd clean any pony with. Shampoo will take away the sticky just the same as dishsoap or special cleaning agents.

Be very gentle when you clean him, though. I've dealt with a few cases of plasticizer loss so far, and one thing I've noticed is that as the plasticizer rises to the surface, sometimes it loosens the symbol paint (like water getting under a band-aid) and the symbol almost seems to remove itself.

He'll end up about 2 shades darker when the process is all said and done, too.

I don't have any advice, sadly, but I've noticed the BB's seem exceptionally prone to plasticizer leakage. Both my Salty and Quarterback can make suitable hammer substitutes. Salty has it really bad, the poor boy doesn't have any flexibility left.
