Going to events isn’t complete without getting a souvenir or two—and one of the best souvenirs to collect are keychains!
Plush, laminated, keybie-fied or rubberized, it’s easy to grab your favorite characters in all their cute (or hot) glory.
Unless you keep your collection locked away in a safe, dry space though, there’s no avoiding dirt and grime accumulating on their surfaces.
Rubber keychains in particular can look especially worn when they’re all dirty, but did you know there’s a trick to making them look like new again?
You don’t even need soap!
Marutokidoki Onichan’s keychain cleaning method
There’s just one thing you need to make your rubber keychains look like they’d just come out of their packaging, and yes, it really isn’t soap.
It’s wood glue.
Unfortunately, this method wouldn’t work on keybies. Wood glue would stick to the keybies’ sides, and make them come off entirely. Unlike rubber keychains, keybies can be cleaned with a damp (not wet!) rag (not tissue!).
Keeping keybies clean and looking new isn’t hard if you follow 3 simple rules.
We’re always working on new methods to improve the keybie as you know it, but until then, caring for your keybies is easier than you think!
