If you are a doll lover you have seen this devastating thing happen to good dolls, on line, at yard sales or perhaps in your own doll family. Ink on your doll, just about one of the most common things a doll lover like me encounters on a fairly regular basis . My niece Hannah's Marie Grace doll suffered from a "love" induced ink heart drawn on her face. My nieces are visiting from Montreal and my sister had a two doll max for the girls each to bring but Marie-Grace made the trip for a spa visit at Aunty Karen's.
Once Marie-Grace arrived at my house, I honestly did not know what to do, I tried cleaning her the way I knew best and the ink mark would not budge. I contacted my Adult Doll Collecting group and they recommended that I use 10% benzoyl peroxide, which I could not find near my house in Canada. So I headed to the Peace Arch Border Crossing and made a day trip for school supplies, lunch and a tube of this magic cream. I bought the Zapzyt brand at Walmart .Once I got home I set out to save Marie-Grace. Listening to the advice of my friend Amy Bray, I applied only the cream to her affected cheek and left it to work it's magic for 24 hours.
I used a wet facecloth and gently removed the cream and I was honestly shocked and amazed at how well this worked. My niece and my sister were just as thrilled with the result and I am in debt to the wonderful ladies in my Adult Doll Collecting group who helped me to save Maire-Grace.
