Alum is the only thing you can buy at any pharmacy that would help you. The problem is alum really isn't a tan at all and is considered as a prepickle to help set the hair. Alum shrinks the skin and makes it tight.
Your best bet is not to mess around with store products, get on the net here, click suppliers and get a kit that will tan a hide. Your wasting more buy trying to be cheap and use home remidies.
Next to that vinegar will work but along with the vinegar you still need Ph strips to make sure what your Ph is. It's not rocket science here but there are proper steps you need to take. Save yourself all that agravation. Also typw in pickles in the search button. You'll find out more on your vinegar mix.
