Hi guys! I'm new but I'm hoping to get some input on restoring these ponies i recently picked up!

I've used soap, toothpaste, vinegar, magic eraser, and small areas of nail polish remover. These are the ponies that those techniques have not worked with.

Baby stockings has brown marks on her face and butt along with what looks like an ink spot near her mane.

Sundance has an ink patch on her leg and some blue possible ink stain on her rump.

Birthflower morning glory has what i believe is the smooze. She got a nice vinegar soak and i've scrubbed and scrubbedbut i'm unsure where to go from here. She also has a pink patch from either biproduct of breakdown or highlighter. I cant tell the difference!

I really appreciate any input!!!

What sort of nail polish remover? For the brown marks on Baby Stockings, I'd try 100% acetone. Just avoid her paint as much as possible. As for the ink spot, you will have to look into sunfading. Same with Sundance.
That pink highlighter spot miight be another sunfade-needed. If you think it's smooze on Morning Glory, try an oxi-clean bath instead. Also, don't just scrub, you have to SCRAPE.

I used my nails and scraped as shown online but i think i may have to oxy. If i do do i need to do anything special to protect her paint or hair?

I just took another pic. Def fungal biproduct pinking!!!!

As for the acetone, it doesnt say. Just that the first listed ingredient is acetone .

I'd invest in 100% acetone if possible. I was able to get it at my workplace (a grocery store) for $1.50. It's good just to have even if it doesn't work.
For oxiclean, remove the tail but there's not much you need to do to protect the paint or mane. The mane will feel weird afterwards, but I find a deep conditioning will spruce it back up. If you're only doing the body anyway, you'll just have to worry about the pony feeling weiiird until it dries. It gets super rubbery.

I would definitely say that your Birthflower pony has Smooze.

The best thing is to boil it and scrub it under hot water. It requires a lot of scrubbing (I’ve spent hours on one pony alone). The Oxiclean works but you need to soak it in very hot or just boiled water. The hot water opens up the pores on the pony to allow the dirt and grime to come out.

Everything else is what twishy said. :)
