residue from stop-slip?

Submitted by Judy on 12/13/2003. ( ) 209.52.197.38

I used stop-slip on the head of a black bear rug. The fur is now noticably duller than the rest of the hide, with a chaulky residue from spraying the stop-slip on the fur. Anyone else have this problem and how did you fix it. I tried wiping it with a paper towel soaked with laquer thinner and didn't seem to make any difference.

thanks.

Huh?

I'm a little confused. Why would you spray Stop-Slip on the head of a bear rug. It's designed to stop slippage before a hide is tanned and the normal tanning procedures will remove any possible residue. I suspect the product contains alum to seal the hair follicles, but again, after a hide is tanned, the product does no good.

I'd suggest using a cloth saturated with hot soapy water and washing the hair. Then towel dry, blow dry, and then spray some furniture polish on a soft cloth and rub it into the hair.
