Be VERY careful with it

Bloodout/Degreaser is an industrial strenght soap with a high pH. Bear hides are susceptible to slippage during normal processes and if you use the Bloodout, make SURE you don't leave it in the solution too long. It will certainly do everything required of a good degreaser, but left too long, invites slippage. Limit contact to 20 minutes or less total.

And the best thing to do with bear hides is to have the professionally done. I must type that once a week or more. Professional tanneries have methods and devices for constant monitoring of the hide and you are money ahead to use them.
