Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Hi guys! It’s Mafuyu from Goods Republic!


Mafuyu(^q^)/ :So! As I was staring at Top 100 Items in this week today as usual…



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Just as I’d expected! Plushies or Figures are popular!



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :By the way, I shared some infor about how to take care of your plushies before, right? Since most of the materials of plushies are very delicate, such as cloths and cottons, Japanese Otaku take a special care when they wash them…!



Wash Your Plushies! Take Care of Your Loving Goods!



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :So today! I’ll feature how to take care of FIGURES since we’ve already done with the plushies before!



How to Take Care of Your Figures! This Is How Japanese Otaku Wash Their Figures!



※The best way of washing the Figures differs depending on the material’s quality of each Figure.

※Please wash Figures with a special care.



★The Most Important Point when you wash the Figure are the “Water’ and the “Diluted Neutral Detergent"



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :What is most important when you wash them with water is to avoid “heat” and “losing color”.



●Why does it have to be the warm water? → To avoid the deformation of the figures by heat!


●Why do we have to dilute the detergent? → To avoid the paint peeling or losing color of the figures by detergent!



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :When we wash them with our hands, bear these things shown below in mind! If you don’t know how warm the water should be, you can use the regular cold water too!



1. Put the water and the neutral detergent in the container that the figure fits and froth them up.

2. Wash the figure gently in the container as if you wash it only with the foam.

3. Wipe the figure gently with a towel or a tissue paper with fine texture, or let it dry naturally after you shake it gently, getting rid of the water.



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Some figures have stickers on some parts! Please check it out before you wash it so it won’t be peeled off while you’re washing it!


Mafuyu(^q^)/ :One more thing! If the figure you have can be taken apart to some parts, please take them apart before you wash if you can. That way you can wash it more finely or you might even find the stain, which you have never noticed before…!



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :BUT! If you do that, please be very careful so no water will go into the empty space inside and so every part is dried up completely!



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :Also, try to avoid putting the figures in the place where they get the direct sunshine when you dry them! The best place is where they have a shade and are also well-ventilated, just like I advised for the plushies too!



Mafuyu(^q^)/ :It looks like we have many things to bear in mind when we wash the figures just like when we wash the plushies, huh…?


So… you guys, try to wash your figures gently with a great care, okay..?


Already! I’ll see you guys at the next article! See ya~!
