First off- the glue on the plush seems to be leaking with age:
Around the nose joint here and near the edge of the green and white on Serperior below. I checked my newer ones and it seems to be only on the older/more loved parts of my collection. Is there any way to safely get that excess glue off?
And second- the pilling of the fur on this plush is driving me nuts. I've tried brushing it with a small bristle brush and it helped a little but not enough. Any suggestions to what might work better?
