    I'm at the breaking stage of tanning a coyote and I got a fair amount of breaking oil on the fur side. Can I wash the pelt briefly in dilute soapy water as long as I continue stretching and breaking as it re-dries? Is there a better way to remove the oil?

    Sencondly, when breaking and stretching a small animal hide, should it be stretched out and tacked during the final drying stages? Thanks.
