Make a Cleaning Paste for Dolls

poster

As you play with your dolls, they’re bound to get dirty. In the past, my dolls have had marker stains and big purple splotches on them. So how to do you rid your dolls of these blemishes? With a simple baking soda paste.

You will need:

  • Baking soda
  • Paper towel
  • Spoon
  • Small bowl
  • Water

Start by dumping a small spoonful of baking soda into your bowl.

Add a few drops of warm water. Stir.

It only takes a tiny bit of water to get this cleaning scrub to the desired toothpaste-like consistency. In the picture above, I put too much water into the bowl, making it soupy. You can fix this by spooning in more baking soda.

Once your paste is done, we can apply it to the doll.

MJ has a black mark on her foot. I’m going to use the paste to clean it.

Get a bit of the paste on the edge of your paper towel. Rub it against the mark, adding more as needed.

Before long, the mark should be gone!

If you want to make the cleaning a more fun experience, try setting up a spa for your dolls. You can see a spa I made in the post The Fairy Tale Spa.

  1. Oh, yes! I’ve tried that once! But I don’t remember it being a toothpaste substance… I probably did it wrong. πŸ˜‰ I’ve just been using a magic eraser for cleaning, but I’ll definitely try this. πŸ™‚

  2. Aww, Navi. She’s so cute! πŸ˜€ This is a great idea. I ‘ll have to try it on Mulan – a pair of black shoes have stained her feet pretty badly. :/

  3. This definitely works! I remember being super scared about little stains on Molly when she was my only doll. I had used this baking soda paste, and the stains came right off. Now I use it pretty often (my poor dolls and their mysterious stains that seem to appear out of nowhere πŸ˜› ). Thanks for sharing, Loren!

  4. I loved this! AG used to have a tutorial on this…but they weren’t specific on how much of what to put in, so it was always a fail for me. (Then again…Maybe it’s just me..) But this one is so much clearer! BTW, I know that you have uploaded lots of photos, and I was wondering if you’re out of photo space yet? I’m at 99.2% used up, and I was wondering if there were any way to get around the space limit. Thanks!
