What's the best way to clean my Lladró statues?
Cleaning Lladró is tricky business and requires very delicate work. If it's just dust, we would recommend a hair blower or a small, soft-bristled artist's or basting brush. If you're removing a spot, try a pencil eraser. If it's just dirt, you might want to spray with a diluted solution of Fantastic™. Fill a second bottle with water to spray off the diluted cleaning solution. Greasy dirt can be removed with a Q-tip™ moistened with a cleaning product called "Greased Lightning." Try to avoid wiping with towels, which can snag flowers and other delicate parts. And whatever you do, don't immerse the figure in water! Aside from the possibility of dropping the item and breaking it in the sink, water will inevitably enter the hollow portions of the figurine through that tiny steam-escape hole in the base. It could be days or weeks before it stops leaking, and any wooden display surfaces will be vulnerable to water damage in the meantime.
