They specialize in products for vinyl dolls and have been in the business for 40 years. Get, most of it off with paper towels and then use a cleaner that will cut through grease to clean the rest.

Once you are done you will need to completey remove the vaseline.

I bring the doll back in at night and remove the vaseline with paper towels. Get a jar of vaseline and apply a even layer to the areas being treated then set out in direct sun. This products works much faster and works better on most stains.Deep stains may still require several weeks of treatment.

I do not know if it will work on blackened magic skin dolls.

I find it works better if you can set the doll in direct sun or in window. Once you have the doll clean then you can access if there are any stains or problems areas.

I do not rinse them in water but instead wipe with a damp cloth to remove the soap residue and grime. Several doll collectors have been experiementing with methods to fix this.
How to Clean Thrift Store Dolls!

In this video I show you how to turn your dolls from drab to fab with an easy Barbie doll makeover!

This is called leaching and is actually coming from a breakdown in the plastic. If the doll is stuffed vinyl then it is more difficult to replace the stuffing. If it is a stuffed cloth doll then replacing the stuffing will help. If the small is coming from inside then you can either clean the inside of the doll or spray inside and try the methods above. Cleaning the doll really good, and airing it outside for awhile will sometimes work.

You can also put the doll in a bag with baking soda, kitty litter or charcoal. This will help extract the odors (make sure to protect the doll if using charcoal). For vinyl dolls there are several methods you can try. It depends on what is causing the smell, and what type of material the doll is made. Dolls need to be stored in a climate controlled area. Avoid direct sunlight, or heating and cooling vents. Storing in a basement or attic can cause serious problems unless the rooms have heating/cooling with no moisture or humidity problems. Put these items in baggies and mark the baggies and store with doll if possible. Dolls with such eyes should be stored standing up or laid on their faces. The best way to store dolls is to remove the clothing and jewelry so that is doesn't stain. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and leave your atrificial flowers looking like new!

Crayon marks on boxes will come off with a damp rag dipped in baking soda. To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. To remove marker or ink on vinyl dolls (if the mark is fresh) use rubbing alcohol on a paper towel. To clean blood stains on clothes, just pour a little peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off the blood. This way only a minimum of ironing is needed if at all. For either of these methods you can hand manipulate the piece, fingerblocking and coaxing it into shape.

You can then place garment on a white towel. Blot dry or roll in towel to soak up excess water.

You can let air dry or blow-dry with a hair dryer set on cool setting. After cleaning and rinsing completly, let drip dry in the sink for several minutes. For some of us cleaning and restoring dolls can be just as much fun as collecting!

I was able to sell many of these dolls for a small profit and use the money to invest in more dolls, doll books, repair materials, ect. These are great for practice and if you ruin them you are not out much money. This category also features a list of basic supplies needed. This lovely reassuring picture book is perfect for a parent to share with a preschool child because together they can enjoy the visual feast. Red, yellow and green apples appear on the inside of the front cover, and apple dolls dance on the inside of the back cover. The warm colorful mixed media illustrations both folksy and fanciful are filled with realistic action and reveal much interesting detail. Lizzie who must return to school sits by herself in the playground and feels very lonely. She watches the tree change through the seasons, pretending that her tree is "a skeleton rattling in the autumn" a gingerbread cake with snowy frosting during winter, "a blossomy springtime cloud" and "a leafy summer circus"; charming vignettes show her eating snow in winter, and swinging upside down on a branch of the tree in summer.

Doll Cleaner

Wonderful artist/illustrator and beautiful and touching novel for children. The illustrations are adorable as well as the story. Created in mixed media with collage elements, the illustrations vary in size and complexity, from small winsome vignettes to detailed, double-page spreads that carry the eye from the main character to the outskirts of her neighborhood. Will he be able to find it somewhere in the ballpark?

A plot summary does little to re-create the charm of this delightfully well-written picture book. But her teacher tells her that dolls aren't allowed at school. Detailed, delightful collage illustrations accompany this sweet story about one girl's success in bringing together her home world and her school world. A little girl stares at her as she eats her lunch all by herself.
