i soak it in a mix of gallons of water to 1 pound of salt and add a little bactricide. for good mearsure and leave it in there for 20 minutes and then i take it out and put it in a garbage bag and into the fridge over night. by morning it should be pretty well rehydrated. thats how i do it


On an air dried - use an agent!

On air dried skins and freezer burned skins I like to use our US-609 Relaxing agent. It's extremely mild on the epidermis and usually will relax within 8-10 hours. Use 1 fl. oz. to each 1 gallon of water - nothing else - no Salt - No bacteriacide!
