How are your Nekochii Cat Ears holding up? Maybe you got them yesterday? Or, maybe you bought some from a Nekochii convention stall a decade ago? If you still have your kitty ears, we'll be happy to show you how to revive them so they look as good as new!
Nekochii Jen is our kitty ear expert, and she has three easy tips to bring new life into your nekomimi, and to keep them beautiful and purrfect for many more years to come!
Tip 1: Use A Pet Brush - Just Like Real Kitties!
Get your pet brush and brush your ears downwards with even strokes. This does two things: Firstly, it neatens up the fur just like brushing morning hair. Secondly, it actually makes them shine and sparkle (for real, it polishes up the synthetic fur, making it shine).
We give the ears a good brushing before we pack and ship them to you, and we also brush the ears before every market and convention show. It's a caring ritual, and you can do it any time you want to give your ears a quick spruce up. Watch the video above to see how it works!
Tip 2: Give Them A Gentle Ironing
Get rid of the wrinkles on the inner fabric, and straighten your ears again by laying the cat ears flat on their backs. Place some cloth over the inner part of the cat ear. With the cloth protecting the ears, apply an iron on the *lowest* heat setting, and *gently* press out the wrinkles. Check out the video above to see the magic happen!
Tip 3: Store Your Nekomimi With Care
Our kitty ears can really take a beating, they're actually very durable! But, if you want to keep the ears in good condition with as little work as possible, all you have to do store your cat ears carefully. Try not to squish the ears too much when you pop them in your bag or drawer, this will stop the wrinkles and folds from happening!
