Cleaning Advice Needed! [Sunshine Family Doll]
« on: June 16, 2017, 01:14:43 AM »
hello everyone!

recently, at a flea market, my mom picked up this sunshine family doll. since i clean up my ponies, she asked me to clean him up as well!

i don't want to hurt him in any way, so i figured i should ask here before attempting anything.

specifically, she wants his hair washed.

thank you for any help!

I found a couple of these once and cleaned them up. They seemed to have good hair quality, on par with Barbie.  I cleaned mine with baby shampoo and then a touch of conditioner and it came out well.  If you wanted to be extra careful you could use wig shampoo and conditioner, and wash in cold water.

Yea I have cleaned these, but not with a magic eraser for sure on the body because it will scratch it.  I use just regular shampoo and conditioner and a liquid soap for the body will do.
