I saw others here recommended just waiting as sometimes the stains naturally disappear on their own after a couple days. In my case that worked, so I didn't have to do anything to remove the stains, they just vanished.Is there any way to remove a clothing stain from a Phicen body? I had applied the clothing only briefly and it stained the legs a dark blue! Has anyone had any success restoring their figures once this has happened?
Same thing happened to my Enterbay Matt Damon headsculpt. The neck was badly stained by the black collar so i just kept it in a ziploc.I saw others here recommended just waiting as sometimes the stains naturally disappear on their own after a couple days.

It works with phicen too. At least with the older generations. I had the same problem with a goth dress that stained the arms of one of mine. The stains washed out themselves after about a month. Silicone and vinyl tend to absorb it. Funny stuff, if you use some paint on vinyl, sometimes it absorbs some pigment more than another. I remember several times painting lips with a mix of white brown blue red acrylic paint and about a year after, only the white pigment was left. This is also sometimes why you see genuine, once blonde GI Joes with white hair.Same thing happened to my Enterbay Matt Damon headsculpt.

After a few months, I was surprised to see the stains totally gone.
Hope that's true with all Phicens...
It's very possible. The only phicen I had that ever got stained. I did nothing. And it disappeared completely. However, I've had some vinyl Mego hs from eBay they had remained stained for years with felt pen, and oxy10 did miracles.I tried a combination of "waiting it out" and using Oxy (not the 10% version). The "stains" (if they really are stains) have disappeared by 90%. I wonder if Oxy was necessary at all...
I realise that a vinegar soak wash does not effectively fix the dye in the clothes. My latest purchase of a black leather outfit with black cloth backing, mildly stained my Jiaou Doll arms after leaving it on for 3 to 4 days. I am giving the figure the Oxy10 treatment currently.For the staining clothes, I wash it with clothes washing detergent and scrub it to get as much of the dye out (ie. if the 1/6 costume is safe to be scrubbed) then just soak and rinse several times. Then soak it in vinegar for 24 hours to stop the dye from staining (the vinegar seals the dye in). I use industral vinegar which is cheaper than natural vinegar. Dry the clothes fully. Then it should be okay for use without staining again.
