Hello fellas, I am sure you guys have your own way of cleaning the heads of your flock heads, but i always had great results by using an old (and i stress an old) nail brush, because after all, it is fluff and other nasty bits that gets caught up in there over the years.

I simply run the head under a nice warm tap (fawcett for our US cousins) and gently run the bristles of the nail brush over the flock, you can use some soap if you like, it won't harm the flock at all.

I have used this simple method dozens of times with great results.

Also, a rub under the same tap with some toothpaste can refresh the face paint without removing any.

Hope this little tip helps.

Neil.

Great tip cheers

Toothpaste is also good for cleaning the hands, some of my MAM came in with very dirty hands, they're like new now, with an added bonus of smelling minty fresh! Smile

Thanks Smile
