    Cleaning Phicen seamless figures question

    Hello everyone, I have looked around but I would like to ask specifically if anyone knows how to clean the Phicen figures?
    I guess that I just use water, but I am concerned that it may make it sticky.
    Should I apply powder or cornstarch as with other 'cyber skin' products?

    Really appreciate any help, I am new to this but loving it, and will probably soon post some pictures.
    Cheers

    Could you be a little more specific? Are you just cleaning off dust/lint? Or attempting to clean a stain?

    I cleaned mine with water and soap. She will become sticky, yes. But you already know the solution: cornstarch will make her smooth again. So go right ahead, give her a bath.

    For stain - Use Oxy 10, work like charm. (reapply if the stain is stubborn and repeat the process until gone)

    For dirt or dust - Use water, reapply cornstarch afterward. (Use other powder before but cornstarch is best)

    This question just came up recently on the main forum. Short version is plain water is recommended, some use zit cream with hydrogen peroxide in it, and a little cornstarch or baby powder goes a very long way and it's easier to add more powder than get rid of too much.

    So just apply the powder directly to the figure body?

    I apply powder with a soft brush. I add powder to areas that need it if it's been posed a lot to maintain. If the figure has been cleaned with water, I powder the whole thing with the head sculpt off.

    Re: Cleaning Phicen seamless figures question

    Hey all - my Phicen Seamless just got really bad stains from new clothes. I bought the Oxy cream mentioned in the post above. Does anyone know how long I leave it on the figure before I wash off? I don’t want to leave it too long and risk damaging the figure. Please help. Thank you!!!

    Lint and dust is easy to rinse off, that i know at least, but when it comes to stains i think previous authors in this thread are correct.




    One is bigger than 1/6 scale, but that does'nt matter !

    Ok but that still doesn’t answer my question: How long do I leave the Oxy stuff on the figure before I wash off?

    Ok i'll put it this way? Can Oxy cream destroy the skin of any Phicen?
    If it cant let it sit as long as it need to.

    Good question.

    According to https://www.industrialspec.com/image...m-ism-2016.pdf, peroxyde should not be used with TPE. But I think it boils down to concentration. I would expect the product designed to be applied to one's face to have a much lower peroxyde concentration.

    UPDATE: I stand corrected: benzoyl peroxide not hydrogen peroxyde. See Phicen female bodies stain removal? for times
