Yarn hair can be combed gently, using your fingers or a wide toothed pick, do not use a brush or comb.
As the doll becomes soiled during play, you can touch up small stain areas with soap and water and scrubbing with a toothbrush. Oily stains can also be removed using dry cleaning fluid applied by dipping a cloth in the fluid and rubbing it over the soiled area. CAUTION: Dry cleaning fluid should only be used by an adult in a ventilated area. Let the doll air out and dry compleltely so that the fluid is completely dissipated before play.
When the doll is ready for a complete bath, fill a basin with cool water and a mild soap. Wrap any long loose hair styles in a nylon stocking to prevent matting and felting.
Immerse the doll and gently suds the soil away, scrubbing extra dirty areas with a toothbrush. Be careful not to rub the hair. Rinse the doll in cool water, and BLOT excess moisture with a towel - do not wring.
