Staining from clothing
« on: July 12, 2020, 09:03:30 PM »
Can a TPE doll be stained from dark clothing?? I know white is a good color, but darker colors such as blue or red would look amazing on my doll especially if it was a satin or silk nightie or negligee. I would hate to see her damaged after spending so much for her. I imagine seeing her sitting in my bed when I come home from work.
Any advice would be most helpful.

Yes, a TPE doll can become stained from dark clothing.  It can even happen with a silicone doll, but with TPE it seems easier to happen.   It's rule #1 when buying clothing... ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS wash ANY clothing before you put it on your doll.  Lighter colors "should" be safer but still, wash 'em anyways.

Yes. TPE stains easily.  Good advise from Euchre.

I would also like to add that even if dark clothes are washed they can still stain if left on the doll a long time.
It is usually ok to use dark colors for photos or short times but gets risky if left on for a couple days or longer.
White or very light colors are best for longer times or storage.
Also, if you were to get a stain on the doll, the stain can be removed. So don't panic and try a harsh cleaner. Pimple (acne) cream
works really well and won't harm the doll. It is amazing how well it works. There are posts on using the cream for stains.
I never had a stain on my doll or other dolls that this cream didn't get out. The brand name is Oxy 10.
