Mannequins are great sales tools. They show off clothing and other items of apparel better than any other method. However, dingy mannequins look shoddy. They can even detract from your overall sales display. You should clean all mannequins regularly to keep them spotless.

Step 1

Wash your hands thoroughly. Make sure that you have no dirt or grime on them or they will smudge your mannequin as you clean it.
