I am having trouble getting my deer capes clean even though I wash and rinse by hand 3-4 times in clean fresh water and when I mount and they dry, the hair gets very stiff and not soft and fluffy like it should be. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your time,
Have a great day!

Allen I don't know if these capes are tanned or not but this is how I do mine and their tanned.
Wash the cape using pert shampoo rinse and wash again. From there I rinse it two to three times, tumble in a clothes dryer (set on cool) with plenty of towels in it for 15 min and then mount.
Put a little hair conditioner in the final rinse it works.
allen, what kind of tan? and do you tumble in sawdust? it sounds like you might be skiping something, respond and someone will help
It is a Liqua-tanned cape and no I don't tumble in sawdust.
Follow my post above ^(washing capes) and it'll work out real nice for you. As for the conditioner Pert has it in the shampoo. It works better than other shampoo's. I also use Liqua-tan plus EZ-100.
