Having figures like figma, Fraulein, mameshiki, nendo, PVC and other types, sometimes they can get stained by our very hands during handling.
So, let’s see on how to clean them up. Do note however, if you feel uncertain, squeamish or doubtful in doing this, then don’t.
Regular cleaning method sometimes failed, like the one I’d experienced with cleaning dirt stains from Marisa during her repair job.
Her shirt is made from soft POM material, which in turn is a pretty good dirt magnet from our hands.
Having figures getting dirtied is a typical issue from doing figure stories.
Another item is a small bowl of water for rinsing the figure. Amazingly, never knew that Benzoyl Peroxide can be used for this purpose.
Yes, I know some might be having lewd or suggestive thoughts about this, but then again, it’s your mind that is screwed. If you having those, please, I implore you, go up a ten story building and leap out from the window. Thank you.
Yes, works a lot better than your standard soap or dish washing solution. After scrub the areas, do rinse it with water-soaked swab. If the stain is persistent, use a fresh swab with the cream and scrub again then rinse. May take several tries.
Back to cleaned state. (or close enough)
After scrubbing and rinsing, dry the figure with a soft cloth and done.
Now I need to wore gloves next time around. Or just wash and dry my hands only.
This particular information was from this forum. Note the part highlighted in red. The only bit that I haven’t done is scrub it on painted parts…
Took me two swabs in cleaning Mikuru’s shirt.
Only one of them is knowledgeable about this…
