First wash the plastic doll with with mild dish soap and warm water to remove dust. Then hang the doll upside down so all the water will drain out though the hair.


When completely dry use Goo Gone on a paper towel. The paper towel is just stiff enough to remove the grime. A doll arm with a bottle of Goo Gone

Use Q-tips to do the details. Cleaning a plastic doll's ear with a Q-tip.


The results are pretty nice! :)
