Thawed, Salted Cape

Submitted by Mike on 2/9/05 at 6:28 PM. ( ) 68.37.210.155

I just receive a cape that came salted, and on its way to being thawed. I have one big dripping mess.Defineltly looks like bacteria waiting to happen. Can I rinse this cape to get the wet salt off, then resalt to dry? Any information would help
Thank
Mike

Just shake the loose salt off and dont worry about washing it, make sure you salt both sides to be safe (hair and skin )


Thanks Steve
