Sticky Nendoroids

mood: random
song: K theme



Just a simple tutorial on how to deal with stickiness on your precious Nendoriods.
What are the causes to this stickiness on Nendoroids?
 It was caused by plasticizer the main material used on figures that was used on PVC in order to make them softer. However, after a certain period the plasticizer will become vaporize and creates a sticky layers on our figurine.

This is normal. So do not panic when you experience this. ;)

What I used to clean off the stickiness
1. mild dish washing liquid
2. luke warm water 
3. cotton bud

* I WOULD NOT GUARANTEE THAT THIS METHOD I USED WILL WORK ON YOUR FIGURES LIKE MINE DID. THEREFORE, PLEASE CLEAN IT AT YOUR OWN RISK*

First, prepare an amount of luke warm water with a few drops of dish washing liquid. Mix until you can see bubbles appear. Then, put in the parts of your Nendoriods that you wish to clean. Gently rub the parts of the Nendoriods that is sticky with your fingers or cotton bud. Then soak it for 15 minutes.
*NOTE: Do not allow the water level to touch the face of your Nendoriods as i am afraid that it might damage the printing on their faces.

Finally, rinse them slowly with some water to remove the bubbles from the Nendoroid parts and leave them to dry.
After the entire process, you will finally have the result of NON STICKY NENDORIODS!!
Your Nendoriods will be as clean as new.
Wheee~

WAYS TO PREVENT STICKINESS
- Do not place your precious Nendoroids under sunlight for a period of time
- Do not abandon your Nendoriods in sealed boxes for too long
- Air them once in a while by allowing air ventilation
