The product by that name has been around for a good number of years. It was originally developed for dog and cat urine odors in carpet. It should be avaiable through a pet shop or tropical fish shop, as a stock item or something they can order in for you through their suppliers. I have been told the company now has their own web site, and is also promoting it as a taxidermy use product. Check with the company and find out how they suggest using it for your application.

Try 100% mineral spirits

We generally use Love my carpet, then vacuum, follow by wiping the hair side down with 100% pure mineral spirits. put on by wetting a cloth and wiping the hair. Don't soak the skin, as it can remove or streak the any dye used on the hide
