Bloody cape

Submitted by Steve A. on 11/23/99. ( )

I received a very bloody Mule Deer cape yesterday. Normally
I would wash this first, then throw it in the tumbler to dry
it somewhat before salting. I have experienced some slippage
at times doing this. So on this cape I skipped the washing
and salted it heavily. I put some extra salt on the fur side
where two small bullet holes were. I see where Mr. Rittel
recomends not washing prior to salting so I plan to give this
a try. But should this be done even on very bloody capes? I
know that bacteria love to feed on this. Thanks for your help.

Use Blood-Eater on it!

When you relax the cape use Rittels BE-639 Blood-Eater product on it. Its both a great relaxer AND a blood cleaning product. Dont panic when the solution turns blood red - the product is simply doing its job. The blood will simply rinse away!
