the very best answer would be to contact the tannery who did your tanning to get there recomdations. I say this since not all tanneries are using the same methods. me telling you my method of soaking and sweating
my not work or even cause loose hair especially with bear.good luck.


Relax R

With most all tans you can use our Relax R, to rehydrate the
skin. Use 2oz to 5 gallons of water, with this wetting agent
it will help with putting some stretch back into the skin.
Keep you salt down to about 4oz per gallon if any at all.
You should notice a faster rehydration time.
