    Thought I had some on the shelf, but turns out I dont. What kind of store carries borax? Would something like Michaels have it. I skinned my bass last night and I dont want to refreeze until I can order. Can I leave the skin in water for a day or two?

    walmart like they said, or you could use denatured alcholhol / water mix 50/50 soak overnight, or refreeze it

    bradc, I know that Menards and Lowes in my area carry denatured alcohol. It should be in the paint section.

    Lowes, Home Depot, some Walmart but they only carry it in quarts. It's on the same isle as laquer thinner and that sort of stuff.
