Default Safe soaps for TPE Question

May be a silly question but which soap(s) are safe to use cleaning a new TPE doll available in the UK?

Seen mention of antibacterial soap, the only types I have come across is either Detol Soap (yellow solid soap) and antibacterial handwash (liquid).

I have read on TDF a 1:5 soap mix but have not found what that is.

With lukewarm water and if necessary with mild personal hygiene articles such as
for example Wash hair shampoo or color neutral shower gel, and a soft washcloth.

Please remember, if you use detergent with surfactants or otherwise the own oil withdraws, the base material is fragile and breaks.

I use, and do so as i read on forums like this, fairy liquid. Lathers up great, smells nice, and leaves her clean enough to eat off of (pun intended).
I guess anything natural and non alcoholic would do so most soaps like simple soap etc ? I'm sure others willl reply and probably lots of answers and advice here and other forums

Very good question, i have been using this method for years with no adverse effects, Though it only gives a surface clean, if after yiu wash the doll you still find she is dirty then you need to go to method 2

My Method 2 is facial make up wipes with a spot of baby oil on the wipe then gentle draw across the area to be cleaned and be prepared to be amazed

I have done this on what looked like a clean area only for the wipe and baby oil to give a deep clean and lift deep down dirt, you need to try is to see what i mean.....

If that does not clean her then lovedoll uk sell a cleaning cream and stain remover though some people have has sucess with Hammer tooth paste for anyone interested ..

I used Tesco Value bubble bath.

It's not so much the washing, but the re-oiling and powdering that follows to kill any static attraction and make her silky smooth again.
