    Just add more acid, but make sure you remove your skins before you do add your acid then put them back in.

    First off what are you doing AKA re-hydrating a cape or pickling the cape.

    If your just re-hydrating a hide, we don't check the Ph of the water. You can soak a hide in salt water for no more than two day. The measurements are 1 pound of salt to a gallon of water. Some folks may add a bactericide to this as per instructions of the product

    If it's a pickle that your trying to do then you need an acid for the Ph to drop.
