Can I use Rittles Degreaser for Bass?

Can I use Rittles degreaser with borax/water solution as a "tan" for a largemouth bass? Also what would the "recipe" of degreaser/borax/water be?

Carrie, you need to do the degreasing separately

Degrease the skin first then soak in your borax solution. As for Rittel's degrease we'll let him comment on it as he's the authority on his own products. Personally I use mineral spirits available locally at a lot less than the catalogs and without the shipping and hazardous fee.


BTW you don't need to degrease bass

only trout and salmon, striped bass, hybrid striped bass, catfish, northerns and muskies and any saltwater skins mounts you do.


Thanks!
