How Do I Care for her?

- Do your best to keep Kit clean, but sometimes accidents happen. Here is a good way to clean her face. First, protect your doll by pulling her hair back from her face and cover her clothing. Mix 1 Tablespoon of baking soda with warm water, then dip a washcloth in warm water and rub the doll’s face with the baking soda paste, being careful not to get her eyes wet. When finished, dry her face with a soft towel.
Please do not:
- Cut or shampoo her hair (the hair can get frizzy and damaged.)
