Rubber on a Vintage Doll Is Breaking Down - old dollI have a Sun Rubber vintage doll from the 1940s/50s and the rubber is getting hard and starting to get brittle in areas such as his hands, a spot on the back of his head, and one of his arms. I have cleaned him with soft non-abrasive soap, but I was wondering if there is some sort of emollient I could use to soften the rubber. Anyone have any ideas?

Poor dolly! These rubber babies are surprisingly fragile. Never use any kind of emmoliant or grease or Petro on them. The only thing doll experts say is dust them annually in cornstarch. Gently massage it into the doll,shake off excess .

A professional doll hospital may be able to more. Home remedies are just not useful. Sadly the rubber will continue to deteriorating. Handle it with cotton gloves, keep it in a climate controlled room, keep it out of direct light, and that will help also.
