Reusing Relaxation Baths

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by Andrew M, Dec 22, 2015.

  1. I've got a bunch of salted hides I need to relax before pickling. If I mix up enough relaxer for one whitetail cape, can I reuse it multiple times for other capes or should I mix up a new batch for each individual cape?

    Thank you!

    Mix a new batch every time. You have no idea on what a cape may or may not have and sitting in that old water it becomes more prudent (bacteria). It's wise to dump it and just make more.
     

  3. Good to know! I'll make sure I do that.

    Thanks!
