A doll restorer gave me the following tips for cleaning dolls:
Composition Dolls - never use water (it's like acid on skin). Clean with Pond's Cold Cream or Vaseline and a soft tissue.
Hard Plastic - Use mild detergent - no chlorine bleach or ammonia - and a soft cloth
Vinyl - Mild detergent - Remove ZIT makes ink stains disappear!
Hair or wigs - reattach with rubber cement (easily cleaned up). Use wig spray to bring back sheen.

I've used a large soft makeup brush to dust some of my older dolls off. I don't use anything with it, just a gentle brushing. It gets in all the little crevises and takes no time to do.
