How can I remove dirt and grime from a loose vintage figure?
This fix is similar to the fix for sticky limbs. All you need is warm water, a mild liquid soap, and a very soft bristled tooth brush. Mix the soap and water until foamy, then dip the figure in the mixture and work it gently with the toothbrush! After you have the dirt off, rinse the figure with warm water and let it dry on a towel.
There… easy as brushing your teeth 🙂
