From Buddington's Use a hair conditioner, such as Clairol, or a liquid fabric softener, such as Downey. Rinse again. Now comb the doll's hair with a pet hair brush. The metal tines of the pet brush better penetrate the hair mass and exert less destructive pressure on the wig base.

You should be very careful with how you clean your doll's hair and try not to get anything on the porcelain as the doll's face may be "painted" (makeup). Most cleaners will wash the paint off so go gently and test it in smaller areas before using cleaning products.


Is this a doll that is valuable (money wise or personal)? Be sure you know that any type of doll cleaning has its hazards and may not always turn out as expected.

There is a lot of information on the Internet about how to clean and care for dolls but a lot of it is not for porcelain but for other types of dolls, so be careful when you are seeking information.

Doll wigs can be made out of different materials also and most wigs are glued on so be sure to take this into account before you begin.

Here are a couple of links that have a lot of information about cleaning doll's hair and other parts of your doll. Remember, go slow and be patient and enjoy your doll.
