Right to the point. My home is heated with diesel. A failure of the heater caused a light soot to fill and circulate around the home. Two of my lovely ladies are covered with it. The third was covered and received minimal damage. The soot is small enough that it is stuck in the pores of the tpe. Soap and water is not enough to get it out. Going to take a lot of work and a lot of oil to clean them up.
If your home is heated with diesel take the proper precautions.
Other things that can happen with fuel burners is the heat exchanger can go out (rupture) causing a lot of soot and smoke in your house. Thankfully I just converted to gas before my beauty came.
Ok, one more picture for fun.
I said, "babe, could you bring me another beer?". She said, "yeah, come and get it!"
Thanks for the idea @Loverofdolls215
So I won't continue this thread unless there are any questions or comments. When all of the clean up is done I will perhaps do a family photo.
One beautiful lady. Two more to go.
Now to protect her so she stays this way.
For sake of conversation and education, I present to you a before and after.
So although my housing situation is unique I know that there are a lot of stick-built houses in North America that are still heated with diesel. I wanted to get a word of caution out to anybody that it may apply to.
Sorry for your troubles. Glad to see the Mineral Oil is working, on your Dolls. But, what about the rest of your House and Furniture? That is going to be a real challenge, to clean...walls, ceilings, floors, counters covered with an oily residue. And any fabrics on the furniture and curtains/drapes; might be ruined...
Wow, so sorry to hear this!
Your doing the right thing going to an oil bath.
That is the worst luck, truly a FML event. I hope they clean up quicker and easier than you're anticipating.
Aw, man :(
But glad to hear the mineral oil is working
This is why we keep our dolls in the plastic in the show room. Do you have renters/home owners insurance? Anything over $100 you should register
