Wrap any long loose hair styles in a nylon stocking to prevent matting and felting. Immerse the doll and gently suds the soil away, scrubbing extra dirty areas with a toothbrush. Be careful not to rub the hair. Rinse the doll in cool water, and BLOT excess moisture with a towel - do not wring. Re-shape the doll as necessary and dry flat on a towel, face up, away from heat.
