Dolls will last for many years with care. Yearly or so use a soft makeup brush to dust doll off. Any stray horse tail hair can be easily tucked back into place using needle nose pliers . Spots and dirt can be removed using mild dishsoap and water , dapping spot with light pressure and swirling motion using small ,soft paint brush. The lighter suede can be cleaned with white baby powder using a small brush also.
If your doll includes a feather and it deteriorates , I will replace it anytime. Just email me!
