She was covered in VARNISH so first job was to give her hair a wash...all intact and non falling so that was a bonus!
Then on to cleaning her up. A Sasha doll owner's best friend is a Magic Eraser. It cleans when damp and when dry you can gently rub away any shiny spots on the vinyl especially handy when black dolls mark or bruise...but do be gentle :)
I used Surgical Spirit to dissolve the varnish . It is a Nurse's best friend and I used to use it a lot in my early nursing days ( not to remove varnish from patients I hasten to add). Then I simply (I say simply it took about an hour to do) rubbed it away with the magic eraser...job done!
And here she is after spending the night wearing a hair net and an old sock on her head.....
Now I have to decide on a name.....any suggestions welcome..but not Flash!
