Doll Care Basics 101 Part 2

Yesterday I provided some doll care basic DO's from the Emily Rose Website, now here are some DON'Ts!! Hope these tips are helpful:


1. Eat or drink while playing with your doll. You can have a tea party for your doll (use water for the tea), but you should not eat or drink. Remember that juice stains or sticky jelly may ruin her.

2. Keep your doll in a plastic bag or box. Always put your doll away when you aren't playing with her, but never seal her in a plastic box or tub. Even if there is the smallest bit of water or moisture in the tub she may get mildew or mold.

3. Curl or blow-dry your doll's hair. Any heat applied to your doll’s hair always spells disaster. Instead style it with a brush and a little water.

4. Try and scrub any ink marks from your doll's arms or legs. If ink accidentally gets on her while she is helping you with your homework, don't try to scratch or scrub it away. Have your Mom help you put it right. The doll’s entire body needs to be covered except for the part with the ink, then rub some vegetable oil into the stain and leave her to dry. After a few times doing this the stain should disappear.

5. Put doll clothes in the washer or dryer. Hand wash doll clothes only in very mild soapy water and air dry them. If the outfit is special and you are in doubt send the clothes to the dry cleaners.
