I am doing a novelty Red Squirrel rug, and it is my first time using a submersion tan and oil. In the past, I have used Curatan and never had a problem with oil in the fur. I am Using Lutan F with ProPlus oil for this one. It said to mix 1 part oil to 2 parts hot water, so I did. This made a very thin solution and I got almost the whole fur side full of oil. I don't have access to a tumbler, So what should I do to get the oil out of the hair? Since it is a rug, will shampooing it make the skin too hard?Just need some advice since this is a first for me.

Put it in a plastic bag with hard wood saw dust and shake it. Do this after the skin is dry.
Thanks,I can get oak sawdust from my school's woodshop. Will Try!
brushing talc through the hair, blowing it out with a compressor, and repeating until the oil is soaked up.
Or -dry clean it! Smply put some sawdust in a plastic garbage bag - add some odorless mineral spirits or lacquer thinner until its damp but not soggy - then tie it off after putting the skin inand bounce it around for 5-10 minutes and blow it off using an air hose!
Thanks Everyone! I Got sawdust from school today and trid plain sawdust right when I got home, It got quite a bit of the oil out. Then I changed the sawdust and added some laquer thinner. I am still shaking it around in a sealed Ice Cream bucket, and it is almost perfect. Thanks Again!
