Oh no!  I unfortunately don't have Kaya's dress so I have no idea how to clean it.  It looks like it might be suede?  Hopefully someone will know!  Good luck!

It's a lot like leather, but it's fake leather.

Looks like you can try gentle baking soda, or dish soap on a damp rag...  GOOD LUCK!

Thanks! I'll try that once it dries. I just tried baby wipes. It helped but didn't completely remove it.

I tried the baking soda. It didn't really do anything. I'll try the dish soap tomorrow.

The dish soap worked! It's not completely gone, but it's 99% gone. Mom and I are both happy with the results. Thank you to all who replied with suggestions.

I always wanted one as a kid but they were too expensive. Last year I found Samantha and Kirsten dolls (original makers) at Savers. I snatched them up and had a blast neatening them up and kept them for a while to fulfill my dream.

I sold Samantha to a guy on ebay who actually picked her up from me to give to his daughter in time for her birthday. How sweet! Right before he drove off he told me that his daughter wanted to customize it to make it a boy - nooooooo!! I was mortified that my doll was to be butchered by a 10 year old. As long as she/he is loved though I guess :x

Kirsten is still for sale. I hope she has a better fate!


Thank you babyblueducky!

Congrats! My mom has been collecting the minis since I grew out of my dolls. Plus we have 10 historicals we don't need anymore! I've since claimed a display shelf in the living room to display my Addy & Kit I'm hoping that everyone just likes it enough to make it a permanent display and rotate out outfits for the seasons/holidays.
