G1 Fixer Uppers-TE Fizzy and Sugarberry
« on: April 07, 2023, 10:59:13 PM »
These ladies took me all day to clean up, and I am so happy they are a part of my herd! :)

I got Fizzy from an Instagram claim auction (g2cvintagetoys). She was covered in ink stains/dirt and gloopy gross yellow/brown stains of questionable origin. :sick:
Her head popped off easily and all of her stains came off/were reduced in strength with a good toothbrush and Dawn scrub, and some Mr Clean Magic Eraser swipes.
Her mane/tail styled beautifully and detangled easily with my conditioner.

And then...there was Sugarberry...

I won Sugarberry from an eBay auction. She looked pretty good once she'd arrived, but her musty smell immediately made my heart sink. I opened her with a lot of struggle, and recoiled--she was covered in mold residue inside!  :yucky:

It took me an entire bottle of vinegar and hours of soaking, rinsing, repeating a refill, and then adding baking soda/vinegar, then rinsing again in extremely hot water to get her clean inside. I let her dry for hours, too. Once dry, I hit her with more hot water, then scrubbed her down thoroughly with shampoo inside and out, including her mane/tail. I let her dry again, then washed her mane/tail with water and shampoo/conditioner.

As I worked on her mane/tail...each brush...a ton of her hair came out. The more I detangled, the more her hair came off. I worried I would have to rehair her. I let her dry a final time, and once I knew she was dry, I put her on display with Fizzy. Thankfully, her mane/tail are okay.

eBay ponies are such a risk. I am glad I got her--Sugarberry is a pony I've wanted forever, along with Fizzy--but oof. So much work today! :sleepy:

I saw the pictures on IG, but I didn't think I commented anything there, except I put a heart of course.  :wonder: :)

They turned out really lovely and beautiful!  :happy:
