How to Clean Your Kidkraft So Suite Dollhouse by:Rachel Nuñez
In a world of little-girl daydreams, having her own dollhouse is a dream come true. The sight of her running around, healthy and happy, the sound of thrill and excitement in her giggles, the tenderness of her touch - these are the joys you will remember for a long time. Having a dollhouse to her liking will be beneficial to both of you.
With Kidkraft So Suite Dollhouse, you can never go wrong. It is made of sturdy and quality wood three stories high with an upper floor verandah and staircase. You can have a choice of its own set of furnitures and decorations or personally purchase them.
However, if your princess wants to personally choose her furnishings, encourage her to do so. Allow her to imagine how to live in the real world. Let her explore and experiment things within her own dollhouse.
This is a good opportunity for your daughter and you to bond together in a world of make-believe. Make her realize that having this dollhouse comes with responsibilities like keeping it clean and orderly. This will also serve as a training ground for her future housekeeping activities.
You usually use a dry cloth to wipe away the dirt on wooden surfaces. But there are other ways to clean a Kidkraft So Suite Dollhouse. Here are some suggestions:
To maintain the glossy finish of your wooden dollhouse, rub surfaces with a soft cloth that has been dipped in a quart of water with lemon squeeze. A dry cloth is always used to wipe them afterwards. Another dipping solution is a mixture of one half cup ammonia and water.
In the midst of your child's play-acting, it is sometimes unavoidable if water rings are set on the wooden surface of the dollhouse. Water rings are best removed when still fresh. There are other techniques to try - like an application of an oil-based polish, mayonnaise, toothpaste and baking soda, and cooking oil and salt.
An overly eager child playing with her dollhouse might attempt to put crayon marks on its surfaces. Remove these marks by cleaning with oil soaps or mineral spirits. You can also apply non-gel toothpaste which is a safe alternative.
Stickers may be removed by using rubbing alcohol or vegetable oil. They are very effective but it is best to test first on a non-visible area of the Kidkraft So Suite Dollhouse to see if they do not harm the finish. Another technique is by using a hot hair dryer while peeling them off little by little.
Accessories and furnishings can also be cleaned by dusting them or wiping using a dry cloth. A mini vacuum cleaner may also be used. To prevent allergy attack, it is practical to use a mask.
There is no better way to teach your child about responsibility than by giving her the chance to take care of her own things. Allowing her to be in charge of its cleanliness and maintenance will make her more appreciative of things of value.
