  • Dolls are designed to be fun, to be loved and to be cherished.
    To help maintain your special doll, we offer a few care tips from the Eco-Doll Studio

    General Care:

    Keep your doll’s clothes and hair dust free. Use a small quantity of mild soap or baby’s body soap and shampoo. Never scrub the clothes, rather gently squeeze or knead them until the soil comes out, then rinse in warm water. After washing, do not wring, but gently squeeze excess water out. To dry, attach the outfit to a hanger with safety pins at the shoulder seams. Never dry your dolls in direct sun! Before you know it they, and their clothing, will have faded!!!! Keep an eye out as the seasons change. The sun has a sneaky way of changing direction and what you thought was a safe drying area may now be directly in the path of Mr. Sun. Once dry, press only iron-safe fabrics with a warm iron.

  • Hair Tips:

     

    Hair curls

    You could brushing out her hair to keep it neat and in good condition. Hairstyles you can do at home.  The following steps can be taken if you want to fix a doll’s hair curls if they straighten or flatten:

    • Gather small portions of the hair and wrap them, one by one, around a small finger using a damp comb.
    • Secure each curl with a clip, and then pull the finger or comb out.
    • Once hair is dry, spray the curls with a bit of hair spray and let the curls sit overnight. Be sure to cover the doll’s face when spraying.
    • The next day, remove the clips and gently open the curls a bit with your fingertips.

    If you need to storage your doll:

    Store your doll upright on a stand whenever possible. Laying the doll down for extended periods of time in storage also possible. If you must store the doll lying down, we suggest keeping the doll wrapped in white tissue paper. Also, do not store your doll in a damp area, and avoid storing it in areas affected by direct sunlight or severe heat.

  • Hand Washing with your kids

    Make delicate bath/shower for the Doll

    It’s no secret how much children love playing games, so why not apply that? Just as you delicately handle your baby, keep her baby in tact with gentle hand washing. Treat stains the same way you would treat stains on human clothes by spraying on the treatment and then hand washing in cold water with a gentle detergent. Hang the cloth doll or lay flat on a towel to dry to avoid shrinking or damage to the doll’s delicate parts.

  • If the Doll need Restoration…

    If you’ve determined that the cloth doll can withstand the power of a washing machine, toss her in on the gentle cycle and wash in hot water with laundry detergent. If the doll is discolored or extremely dirty, add 2 to 3 cups of distilled vinegar and sprinkle with baking soda. Wash the baby doll in a lingerie bag to keep her hair of yarn in place, or put the cloth doll in a pillowcase and tie securely. Make sure that you remove all clothing, hats and accessories for the doll before placing in a washing machine.
    Baby dolls with no buttons or plastic pieces attached can be dried on low, or for safekeeping, hung to dry. Your daughter may even feel better about being able to see her fresh and clean cloth baby doll line-drying versus tossing and turning in a dryer. Eco-Doll warns that not all toys can survive repeated washings in good condition, so if your child’s doll is getting tattered and torn, seek alternatives to the washing machine and dryer.

    Once a cloth doll emerges from the dryer or dries completely on a clothesline, you may need to restore her hair or body to appease your little one and maintain the cloth doll’s beauty. Repair loose seams, eyes or buttons with a needle and thread and, if needed, brush any exterior parts that need to be fluffed.
    Rid the cloth doll of odors by placing her in a large ziplock plastic bag with baking soda, cornstarch or even baby powder. Shake the bag to coat the cloth doll and leave her in the zipped bag for a few hours so the powder absorbs any odors. Once the cloth doll is revitalized and smelling sweet, take her outside and brush lightly to remove excess powder. A vacuum-cleaner hose or handheld vacuum works well, too, to remove the powder.
