Diluited white vinegar too is very good for this stuff. I also put it on my washer when I bough some used outfit that have the same smell problem ^__- a couple of spoon on a 1/5 liter of water is ok.
I bought a very beautiful doll second hand that I love very much, she’s gorgeous and perfect, I love her custom face up and she’s my dream doll in so many ways. BUT. She smells like cigarette smoke so badly I can hardly stand to handle her at this point. Which is rather heart breaking. I’m very sensitive to smells and can easily feel ill from them. But I love this doll and I don’t want to get rid of her. Is there any safe way to clean this doll? Wig, clothes and all?

Bicarbonate of Soda with boiling (well I wouldn’t use quite boiling with BJDs) water, can be used a gentle cleaning agent and it does get rid of a lot of smells. This should be safe to use on the doll and on the dolls clothes. I have no idea for the wig because I have never cleaned a doll wig with it.
I have not used it to get rid of smoke smells, since I have never had that problem. However I have heard that others have used it for that. I have also heard of people just covering the doll in it and leaving it in a container for a bit, but I have not done that myself. There are a few methods that can be found with a Google search.
I use it all the time to clean my silicon things (which hang on to smells really easily) to get the smells from them, and this includes the lid to my reusable coffee cup which I will assure you is a really strong smell.
Oh don’t put the doll with a face-up in the boiling water because it will turn the MSC white! The rest of the body should be okay though!
