Care for your Dinkum Doll

Those Dinkum Dolls sure do know how to have a good time out and about with their Kiddo counterparts! This does mean that sometimes they end up a little grubby (it's all part of the fun!) So here are our top tips for keeping your Dinkum Doll spick and span!



To Machine Wash 



  • 01Place in pillowcase
    If you would like to give your Dinkum a bath using a washing machine, first place it into a pillowcase or wash bag.
  • 02Seal
    Make sure that the bag is sealed so that your Dinkum Doll won't escape mid-wash.
  • 03Wash
    Wash your Dinkum Doll on a gentle, cold cycle, then leave it in the sun to dry.
  • 04Comb
    Once your Dinkum Doll is dry, use a soft-bristled brush to comb their hair.
  • 05Style
    Style those locks however you choose! 
  • 06Be careful!
    Each Dinkum Doll comes with special embroidered details, like their sweet little Rainbow heart. Be mindful that the stitching and fabrics may wear over time. We do not recommend repeated machine washing.


 To Spot Clean

  • 01Brush 
    Start by brushing your Dinkum Doll's hair using a soft-bristled brush. This is important to do prior to washing in order to remove any fluff or debris that may be stuck in it.
  • 02Remove Clothing
    Remove your Dinkum Doll's clothing. These can be washed together with your usual laundry.
  • 03Wet a cloth
    Wet a cloth under warm water...
  • 04Apply
    ...then apply your favourite organic washing detergent. 
  • 05Lather
    Using circular motions, lather the detergent into the parts of the Dinkum Doll you would like to spot clean...
  • 06Repeat
    ...then repeat using only water until the doll is clean. Lay your Dinkum Doll in the sun to dry.
