Given how much you all love the Dinkum Dolls, we wanted to create a quite 'how to clean' guide. If you're favourite dolls gets a little grubby, don't worry at all!
Here are a couple of snippets that will help, but for the full blog (and gorgeous pictures) visit Olliella.com or click here.
We always recommend that, if possible, you spot clean your Dinkum Doll by hand.
To do this, simply follow the below steps:
1. Brush Hair.
Start by brushing your Dinkum Doll's hair using a soft-bristled brush. This is important to do prior to washing in order to remove any fluff or debris that may be stuck in it.
2. Remove Clothing.
Remove your Dinkum Doll's clothing. These can be washed together with your usual laundry.
3. Wet a Cloth.
Wet a cloth under warm water..
...then apply your favourite organic washing detergent.
Using circular motions, lather the detergent into the parts of the Dinkum Doll you would like to spot clean...
...then repeat using only water until the doll is clean. Lay your Dinkum Doll in the sun to dry.
Follow the below steps if you wish to machine wash your doll.
1. Place in a Pillowcase.
If you would like to give your Dinkum a bath using a washing machine, first place it into a pillow case or wash bag..
...and make sure that the bag is sealed so that your Dinkum Doll won't escape mid-wash.
Wash your Dinkum Doll on a gentle, cold cycle then leave it in sun to dry.
Once your Dinkum Doll is dry, use a soft-bristled brush to comb their hair...
...and style it however you choose!
6. Be Gentle.
Each Dinkum Doll comes with special embroidered details, like their sweet little Rainbow heart. Be mindful that the stitching and fabrics may wear over time. We do not recommend repeated machine washing.
For best results spot clean only.
