This afternoon I unwrapped all of August's body parts besides her head and laid them out.
Then she was double-cleaned. First I brushed each piece with toothpaste and then rinsed. Then I washed each piece with soap and then rinsed. Surprisingly, that took over an hour!
Now her body parts are laid out on a towel draped over Nathaniel's box. The parts are near my open window so they can air-dry. I will leave her like that for at least 24 hours before attempting to restring. [Pay no attention to my boots, Rements and library books in the background. :p]
