Thank you everyone for your advice, I'm so proud of her!!

I%20found%20her%20today%20at%20the%20thrift%20store%20for%2099¢%20and%20I%20was%20so%20excited! Her%20left%20eye%20and%20ear%20wink%20and%20flick%20but%20I%20can't%20get%20her%20tail%20to%20swish. How%20do%20I%20clean%20her%20eyes%20without%20messing%20up%20her%20mechanics%20or%20getting%20water%20stuck%20inside%20of%20her? Do%20I%20just%20sponge%20clean%20her%20body%20with%20warm%20soap%20and%20water? Are%20magic%20erasers%20a%20no-no%20on%20her%20hard%20body%20for%20marks? Can%20I%20wet,%20condition,%20and%20iron%20her%20hair%20like%20a%20regular%20pony? Should%20I%20keep%20the%20weeds%20in%20her%20hair?%20%20%20:silly:%20


Thanks!
-Em

I'm pretty sure her hair is the same as regular pony hair.

Congrats on finding her!

I would use a sponge to clean her body and a toothbrush to clean her eyes. As for her mane, I think it's the hair as they used on the plushies, right? If so, a cleaning with shampoo, a good conditioning and a straightening iron does wonders!

I used a magic eraser on mine. Just be careful around the paint and she'll be fine. I used conditioner on my pony's mane, but I was warned against using a flat iron on her. Her hair is a lot more coarse than regular pony hair...not sure what it is, but I didn't want to risk it with mine.

Be kind of careful when you comb the tail. If you look at the base.. there should be a sting tied there.. if it's not there.. her tail hairs can pull out pretty easily. I wouldn't submerge her. My pony had that stuff on the eyes like yours does, I just used a rag and some water to clean it off I think.

Update:

I cleaned her using warm water, a magic eraser, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Q-tips were especially useful on her eyes.

Also her tail now swishes too!!
