    Is it okay to add salt with ultra soft in the relaxer bath? If so how much? Is ultra soft a better relaxer then blood eater? Thanks a lot in advance!

    Do not add Salt to the US-609 Ultra Soft. It will definately slow down the Relaxing Bath's effect on the skins or capes. We used to place the skins into the Relaxing Bath at 5 PM and then pull them and Rinse the next Morning after Coffee. About 8-9 AM. Usually all were done - Weasel to Bears!

    you can use it in conjunction to get blood out as the product calls for but in reality if your capes were dried with that much blood on your already looking for issues. No cape should be dried with excess blood on it for it will stain it and make it a pain to even get it out.
    Just use the Ultra Soft by itself and it will do what you need

    Thanks guys I've had issues with customers bringing hides in that were frozen or dried with blood, and it tends to stain the white hairs a pinkish tint.
