Capes have been in the pickle bath using safetee acid for 2 days. Capes were salted and thoroughly dried. I did not rehydrate them prior to pickling with a relaxor. Salt was included in the bath per instructions. My question is there a method to further relax the skins prior to the fleshing process once they have been in the pickle bath for 2 days? I have searched the archives and could not find an answer for this question. I would appreciate any insight to this issue. Thanks.

YOU first need to rehydrate the capes prior to pickle. It could take as long as 15 hours depending on type of capes. capes don't really rehydrate in a pickle because of the salt.
