I'm redoing some dummies for a local bakery. The person who made the dummies before me used alot of buttercream underneath the fondant. they kinda smell a bit.

can I wash them with the hose outside? will that damage the cake dummy in anyway?

It wont' damage them, but I'd run it thru the dishwasher, if they fit. That will really deep clean them.

really you can run them thorugh the dishwasher?? are we talking about styrofoam dummies?? I just bought a bunch of dummies and that would be sweet to put them in the dishwasher!

Yes. I had one that was really yucky looking (I'd put black fondant on it). I threw it in the dishwasher and it came out brand-new-white.

Top rack of the dishwasher will work beautifully.

Some bottom racks are too close to the heating element and the stryo can melt if touching the plate separators.

You can also wash them by hand under hot water with some good grease cutting detergent.
