Chapter 4: Creepy Cinderella Gets a Shoe Shine #cinderella #creepydolls #vintagerestoration #vintagedolls
Poor Creepy Cinderella - Her shoes are so, so incredibly dirty from the long, lonely years of storage. They appear to be made of rubber and are so sticky; they must be disintegrating. First, we carefully removed the yellowed laces and placed them in a cool water soak with gentle Avon Soft Pink Bubble Bath. Then, with cotton swabs, and a minimal amount of the bubble bath mixture, we gently rubbed the bottom of Cinderella's Slippers. Nothing. Used an old toothbrush - it just smeared the grime around a bit. But, when the toothbrush was rubbed into a bar of soap (coincidentally Avon's Aloe Vera Soap) ... Voila! It worked wonders and white was almost immediately revealed. Actually, the shoes are a soft plastic - vinyl? After lots of scrubbing with the toothbrush, and only one daring dip in the water to rinse ... just look at the difference!
Cinderella's Shoes Before ...
... and After; the difference speaks for itself!
Now our Creepy Cinderella can truly put her best foot forward!
