I have an American Badger pelt that had been tanned. But the one who had skinned it had not cut the foot bones down to the last joint like they should have. There is most of the foot bones still in there. So now the skin is oily in the feet. I’m thinking I can soak the the feet in warm salt water to soften it up. Then I could use some shears that I have to cut the bone down to where it should. But I was wondering that after I would do that, if possible, that I would be able to wash the feet to get rid of the oils. Can you wash tanned pelts?
