I have a deer hide in a pickle bath the salt & acid pH are fine but the following three days as I re-check and move the skins, I notice a little bit of hairs floating,Is that normal or am I doing something wrong? I re-check the pH and its still 1.0 (By the way,I'm using Safety Acid)your help would be greatful

Danny,

Just a little is normal, if this is your 1st time, you will learn as you go, which hides, capes, and skins leave hair.

I use a plastic cooking utensil, like a burger flipper, to clean out my pickles of this floating hair.


Thanks Bob
