ok remember these ink faces arms & legs? well thanks to the cuties help they now look like this! I wasn't able to find the Clearasil vanishing acne cream but thanks to the information that was shared I did find this OXY product with the same Benzoyl Peroxide Lotion 5% W/W & this is only one treatment left out in the sun for 6 hrs! I moved them into the sun off & on as the time went on. I am so impressed thanks again Cuties to the rescue! I missed a spot on the side of one's face so will try it tomorrow if it is sunny but it did NOT discolour the dolls @ all! Miss Ava will be pleased to have them all back & clean from the nana's fix it hospital LOL

New tip to me. I normally remove ink from cloth with hairspray but can not think that it will come out on a doll. Funny how I recall my daughters dolls also been written on yes and it was in purple too.

I too have used hairspray on ink in the past & toothpaste to get it off a mug. On a doll I thought it was permanent? Glad to know it is not. Hugs & ****

Any ideas on how to wash and clean hair on dolls, it is rather sticky/gooey.

Very impressive-who would have thought huh? Just curious-why do you always call your grand daughter Miss Ava?

pldc by pldc 26 Aug 2013

I call them all Mr. & Mrs. because when the first one was little he wanted to be a grown-up like his papa & when I asked him why he said well big people always call him Mr. (we were @ the bank) so we started calling him Mr. & he would puff up so proud.............it just stuck. If I say Ava she says "Nana youuuu forgot" So it stuck too. Thanks Linda & hugs & **

Wow I never would have thought a acne fighter would fight ink off dolls. Thanks for showing the transformation.Once more and these are new again.

I would have never thought of this either! I just have to wonder what it does to a teens skin since it is an acne lotion if it will fade off 6month old ink? Thanks Mary, hugs & **

Wow. I have a doll from the early 1950's that I need to try that on.

Does anyone know how to make the eyes look brighter????

Thank you.

The example shown was done on a vintage doll that was very badly marked & the transformation is just remarkable. As for the eyes of a doll, well this is the place to ask. Best of luck, hugs & ***

Thank you! I have a collection of dolls that need some help with the ink. Thank you for posting the solution. I didn't know, but will give it a try. Does it have to sit in the sun? Naturally, it is raining here, so that won't help. Also, for how long did you leave it? I have dolls with blue ink and some with red. I think the red will be more challenging!!

Well we are in the summer time here so I sat them outside & moved them through out the day to keep them in the sun. I noticed a change after about 3 hours but kept them out for 6. On the link it says you can keep them under a heat light but that made me nervous in case I forgot & left them there to long they may melt? It also said you may have to do more then one treatment but this result is after the first try. Best of luck, hugs & **

Excellent. Try, Try, and keep Trying products and soon the ink is just about almost gone. Hopefully she has grown enough to not want to mark them up again.

I think she has because she said she didn't want to play with these anymore because they were inky! I only had to try this once & it works super! hugs & **
