We wanted to take this time to remind you that it is probably time to maintain your soft puppet.
Go to your local “Lowes” or equivalent home center and buy a can of aerosol “Scotch Guard”. Lay out a few old newspapers on a table, then take some blue “Painters Masking Tape” to cover the eyes. Do NOT use regular masking tape as it is too strong and may do more damage than good.
Take the blue tape and carefully cover the eyes of each soft puppet. This is a must as Scotch Guard is the natural enemy of your puppets eyes. After covering each eye, take a little more blue tape and “blot” all over the rest of your puppets body to remove any lint, or other loose debris and in general clean it up.
Then take the Scotch Guard and hold it 9 to 12 inches away from your puppet. Lightly spray all exposed surfaces of your puppet. Wait about 10 minutes for it to dry, then repeat the procedure. In about 15 minutes, turn the puppet over and do the same thing on the other side. Repeat.
Now carefully remove the blue tape from the eyes of the puppet and you are done for another year. We will keep it short this week so that you have a little extra time to do the needed annual maintenance. This is simple and easy and will help add years to the life of your soft puppet.
Until next time,
Steve and JET
