So years ago I would soak my velvet racks I got in, in denatured alcohol for a few weeks then just let them dry , and never had an issue . I didn’t do a lot because the season came in well after they shed . Now I would just send out to freeze dry . But with shipping and drying it’s adding dang near $300 to the cost . So I told my client this and said I could soak them like I use to for bout 1/2 the cost but no guarantee. That said I soaked them and took them out after 3 week . They seem to be fine but parts of the rack stayed it natural color while other parts took on a whitish dry look . It’s been years but am I missing something? Did I forget something ? Should I put tanning cream on it to get color back , thanks for any info .
