Bacteriacide for re-hydrating a skin

Submitted by Greg on 07/17/2002. ( ) 64.121.136.10

Is there a common household product that can act as a bacteriacide that can be purchased at local supermarkets or drug stores that can be used when rehydrating skins...I only do a couple skins a year and don't want to purchase through a taxidermy supply company what may be locally available...Thanks!

Phenol has been removed from the market for public use.

LYSOL no longer has this in it and has a very high pH 9.0 and will cause hair slippage. WASCO sells some anti-bacteria tablets, that are great and work very well.


don't need it

if you watch your saok-up, and are only doing one or two skins you don't have to use any. i rehydate large vats of weekly with no bactercide.
