    Thought I read someehere that can leave mckenzie tan on deer cape longer than the 4-5 hrs on the tan instructions. Sometimes much more covenient to leave on longer. Ok to leave on say 8 hrs?

    Whats the longest time you've left it on for? Do you roll it up or leave it flat? Ive left mine on from 5 - 14 hrs and flat and rolled. Just curious, thanks.

    I fold em skin to skin or turn them right side out. I left em that way for 2 days before without issue but I try not to make a habit of it.

  6. I usually apply and leave flat on table for about 2 hours and then roll up and refrigerate for 12 to 16 hours then roll back out flat for an hour or so and wash and rinse, but in the past I've left in the refrigerator for 2 days with no problems.
