I do not use DP. I use the stop rot with my tanning. I would put it on as soon as it is thawed,before you start split and turning the lips and nose etc.Apply it to te flesh side with a paint brush. I would reapply it after every thing is fleshed, then let it set about 30 min to an hour. Then wash and put the DP on it.Glen Conley( maker of stop rot) may can give you more info on it. Randall

Randall nailed it.

About the only thing I can add would be to tumble or "bag" after washing to get rid of excess moisture.

if had great results doing it this way in Louisiana
where i think ive tried most everything else i could get my hands on
salting till dry down here is a bitch with the humidity
you need a controlled room

this year if found stop rot to be the difinitive answer to slippage
i get from now and then from a iffy cape
and in one case i definately know it saved one

i apply it to outside of eyes and in ears and on nose
and then when it starts to defrost if it was froze on the whole inside

but i began adding a second round of it before neutralising from the
pickle/tan i use
it really seems to help the whole process
awesome stuff i use it every time on every cape
