Anyone who has ever sent RealCare Baby out for a simulation experience knows that eventually, Baby is going to need to be washed. But what are the best ways to safely and effectively clean RealCare Baby infant simulators?
To wash Baby’s clothing, use cold water and ensure the washer is set to a gentle cycle. You can tumble dry the clothing on a low cycle, but we recommend line drying or air fluffing to reduce wear and tear.
To remove dirt stains from Baby’s vinyl, we recommend the following commercially available cleaning products:
- Goop® hand cleaner with pumice
- GoJo® orange pumice hand cleaner
- Clean® Magic Eraser
- Acne cream
- Baking soda
- Soft Scrub® cleanser without bleach
- Oxi Clean®
- Mild dish soap
- All-purpose cleaner
- Rubbing alcohol
To remove ink stains from Baby’s vinyl:
- Place a small amount of Clearasil Acne Cream (10% Benzyl Peroxide) on the stained area, then leave Baby in direct sunlight for 1-3 days. Wash stained areas with a combination of Goop or GoJo and water.
Please note that removing ink stains from Baby’s vinyl has proved to be much more difficult than removing dirt stains.
