Corey,
Go to your local beauticians supply (Sally Beauty Supply seems to be a popular national chain.) Most of the bleaching supplies come in prepackaged foil packs. Buy 4 or 6 of the Ultra White Bleaching Powder and read the packet. Buy just enough 30% Developer to complete the suggested recipe. Mix the bleach, carefully following the instructions and safety precautions. Lay your goat hide out on a flat sheet of plywood and apply the bleach to the ENTIRE hide. If you don't you will get serious splotching. When the hide is covered, watch the clock and at the 10 minute mark, wash the hide with lots of water until all the bleach is washed away. If the color is not white enough, reapply another coat of bleach. DO NOT REAPPLY MORE THAN ONCE. If it's not white enough in 20 minutes, you are more likely to dmage the hair than get it any whiter. Bleach makes the hair brittle and fragile.
