LMAO. Aubrey, you KNOW what I do. When I absolutely MUST buy a salt dried or even a flint dried hide, it's in the box and and on the way to be professionally tanned.
Does making the water "Wetter" with a low Ph soap help expedite the rehydration as well as keep bacteria at bay? What about agitation?
I would use 1/2 ounce of Atesan LPW per gallon of water and add a little Formic acid(keep above a 5ph for penetration) and about a 1/4 pound of salt per gallon. Soak for 48 hrs and check it.'longer if needed...Now we're did I screw up?
