How to remove the sticky stuff from doll hair?
« on: July 10, 2017, 08:14:45 AM »
Does anyone know how to remove the (I don't even know what else to call it.) Sticky stuff from doll hair? My Snow bite and sweet 1600 clawdeen's hair are SO STICKY!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

That must be glue seepage! There's a list of glue seepage related threads here: http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,7105.0.html

And I was meaning to try this one I saw, because it seems to have given nice results: http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,12696.msg280448.html#msg280448

That could be either glue seepage or styling product, as both tend to feel pretty sticky.

Styling product can be removed simply by washing your doll's hair with a mild hand soap, dish detergent, or shampoo.  But if you've already washed/restyled your dolls' hair in the past, then it's almost certainly glue seepage, and you'll need to use one of the methods described in the threads that pinkbird linked to.

If it's bad enough, I usually wash and restyle.  If it's super bad I'll boil wash.
