Doll Care Basics 101

One of the reasons I love working with Emily Rose is there is a wealth of information on caring for our babies and keeping them in pristine condition. Here is some information from the Emily Rose Website :


1. Wash first. If you wash your hands before playing with your American Girl© Doll she will be kept clean for longer. Not even your doll likes peanut butter and jelly in their hair!

2. Try to keep your doll out of the direct sunlight. If she’s in the sun, all of your doll’s coloring will start to fade, including all her clothes.

3. Brush your doll's hair regularly. Try to do this every night. Frequent brushing with a wire doll brush helps get out tangles and frizz. If her hair does get tangled, put a little water on the brush to smooth it out. Leave in conditioner also works well.

4. Use baking soda to clean your doll's face. If your doll's face gets dirty or marked, put a little baking soda on a damp washcloth and then gently wash her face. No need to dry it let it air dry afterwards.

5. Vacuum your doll's cloth body. Keep your doll's cloth body clean and free of dirt and dust with a little help from your Mom and a vacuum. Carefully rub cornstarch in to the cloth, leave her overnight, and then vacuum it away the next day.

Hope this helps you with your little ladies!
