I have used this cream for 20 years with no problems Salt your hide and dry it hard
Then i freeze it untill im ready to tan it. It will keep for years
Then i soak it up in cold water and salt for about 21/2 hours
Then i wash it with dawn liquid soap and rinse
Then i soak it in protex presoak for 20 min and spin dry in a washing machine
Then i brush on the cream and cover the hides with a cloth for 6 hours
Then i dust in a sawdust drum to untill the hair is dry
flesh the cape on a machine and do the face with a skiving knife
Then you can mount it or freeze it
I have won profesonal div /master div / master of master div and taxidermist of the year in Pa for deer heads tanned with this method
