    Roadkill Jackalopes are Real !!!!!!!!!!!!

    You can leave it in for a long time as long as the salt levels are maintained and the ph is checked and replaced as needed.
    I know some acids can bleach some red colors a bit, I would keep it to a minimum. I do not know if safty acid will bleach or not.
    I have had good luck with it on Mountain lions nad antleope and red foxes though

    Acids do not fade any colors. in fact they inhance them. Watch out with any sort a bleaching agent. dawn etc. they distroy luster.
