No, soaps are alkaline or base.

Spot wash if needed but to dont do anymore than needed.

The Alkaline base can allow the hair and epidermis to slip.

I wash before salting.

You would also be suprised to see how much dirt is in a cape. I use an old washing machine run it with a little laundry soap. Rinse well, spin dry.

if i wash the cape before i salt do i just run it throught the tumbler to dry the hair or should i just blow it dry? And i've already washed my other cape in dawn after i rehydrated. Do you think ill loose the cape. Its pickeling now and im tanning with lutan F. Thanks alot.
