(I posted this on my now private personal blog on September 11, 2014. Since I now have a toy blog, I'll post it here.)
Today I thrifted a Burger King bobble head for P10. I bought it because I feel that I could salvage it. It was stained with blue ink for a reason God knows what, and its stand is missing.
I used alcohol then an instant stain remover pen to see if I could get rid of the ink stains, but they barely worked. Then I remembered I have acetone because I keep a bottle in my nail polish kit. So I used it and to my surprise, the ink came off, but so did the paint on the plastic, LOL.
Anyway, some photos:

It's missing its stand so these pegs on its feet were useless at first. I couldn't make the figure stand up.
Fortunately I have a small tin lid lying around in my room.
I punctured it with my paring knife (the one I use to cut my Lush soaps) to make two small holes.
Now my bobble head can stand up, hey!
I used acetone to clean its crown because it was just stained with ink. Looks like some of the paint on the crown came off too.
