    Ritters E-Z 1000 tan (Fail HELP)

    I just used this tan. I feel like I am the only one who did not get a good result. I followed the directions down to the last detail. And why are there no "official instructions for the product? :( I had massive hair slippage. The citric acid tan I always used, had a distinct difference after the hide was in it. This product's acid did not seem to change the hide all that much. After neutralizing I put it into the tan. It was horrible. I measured the correct amount of powder, salt, and water. The hide looked no different after it sat in the liquid and the hair fell out . I mean if you rubbed it the skin could be seen. AM I doing something wrong? I measured the powder in the measured cups correctly. I fleshed it correctly. I did not slack in time/ I had a fresh fox.

    Thank you so much for these helpful instructions!

    Silly, newbie question: will this tan work for a soft mount?
  4. I know this is an old post but these directions will come in handy! I just bought tanning supplies from Rittles last week and have a lot of hides that are ready for tanning lol
