grownwoman:

I don’t usually take before and after photos of my ponies, but this is probably one of my greatest achievements in pony styling.

i love that people can’t believe this isn’t a rehair. i feel like i’ve really arrived.

no, not a rehair, and not boil permed. i don’t use heat on my ponies. just cold water, actual shampoo and conditioner, curlers, and time.

So apparently a lot of the community has decided that this brown mold doesn’t spread from pony to pony, like we believed for a long time. 
But I’m telling you, it spread across half a shelf of my herd.  Ponies I know didn’t have it now have a spot or two, and they’re all touching each other.  It’s like the mold hopped down the line, almost a dozen ponies.
I’ve used bleachwater treatment in the past to take care of this, but half of these have glitter symbols that I worry about (they’re all year one and two ponies).  They’ve all been quarantined in plastic baggies for a while now and I’m finally bringing my herd out of storage, so I want to clean these girls up.
I’ve found a lot of mixed things about brown mold in the past couple months (and yes I’ve checked the Pony Restoration Project as well), so what methods have you successfully used to stop this in ponies with glitter symbols?

lumpiest-spaceprincess answered: Is there any way to spot treat with the bleach treatment? Maybe soak a cotton pad in it and put it over the problem area.That’s what I’m wondering!  I’m not sure how much the mold is in the rest of the pony, but just not showing discoloration.

what i’ve found i needed to do was remove their heads and clean their insides out thoroughly with bleach. that can help stop the spread if you notice it continues even after you’ve cleaned the outsides meticulously.
i’ve also had some luck with the zit-cream spot treatment of mold and other discoloration, but as a warning this works mostly only on white or very light ponies, as it can discolor the plastic in other colors. it worked well on my princess tiffany and gingerbread. ooph i really need to clean my herd up. they’ve gotten a little dusty.

cut my own rooting needles out of some large-eye sewing needles and was able to finish rooting her. curled her pigtails and am very excited with the results. the curls are tight and to scale with her. need to spray them still, and do her face, and think about trying to dress her.

unfortunately all of my needles are broken

i fixed her face. just not happy with the blush, even though it’s initially what i had wanted. i like her SO much better now.
