Welcome to the board. My experience is different cloth textiles can react/stain Phicens quite differently. I stitched together a custom bottom (albeit a simple one) with no staining however it sits fairly loosely so as not to rub the figure too much. On a different figure, I purchased a vinyl-ish body suit w/ long arm gloves which completely stained the arms & a portion of the torso. I'm not aware of a simple solution to avoid staining other than to read up on reviews/info about any clothing sets/pieces you might buy. As for custom textiles, it's basically trial & error. One thing I will say, tightness of the textile to the figure can definitely contribute to staining.Hello, I'm new here - sorry to revive such an old thread but didn't feel like opening a new one for just a simple question: do any of you have experience with custom clothes on Phicen seamless bodies that did not end up staining the doll? Does it depend on the textiles used or is it the pigments that make the more substantial difference? I have to get some custom clothes sewn by a seamstress and I was wondering if you had any info/experience on the matter. Thank you very much!
will this work on medicom's berserk cape? I don't have one yet I'd love to buy one in the near future just totally turned off about the staining of his neck and face.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.
Depends on how bad the stain is and how long the figure has been subjected to the staining material. The last time I had mine coated with Oxy10 and wrapped in plastic wrap with it, as mentioned above, was 3 to 4 days I think.I'm about to buy oxy10, how long it has to remain on the body? How many hours/days?
Thank you, OXY10 is arrived today, so you suggest me to keep it a couple of days and see what happen, wrapping it with plastic?Depends on how bad the stain is and how long the figure has been subjected to the staining material.

I have now this recent stain issue with Tifa Lockhart's pleather sleeves and skirt frm JXToys in just 2 weeks. The underside was pre-wrapped with plastic wrap, but not to exact measure at the edges, and so you can see the staining bleeding off there on the thigh and arms. Only other way is to glue the plastic wrap as an internal layer to the clothing edges.
This is the state of Tifa after 5 days wrapped in Oxy10. A similar thing happened with a Jiaou doll I treated. After that I kept it in its box for several months, and when I checked again, all the stains were gone. So I'm now leaving this one alone to air and see what happens in a few months.Thank you, OXY10 is arrived today, so you suggest me to keep it a couple of days and see what happen, wrapping it with plastic?
