my buyer commited on how good it made my beavers look after washing them with a small amount of downy then washed them again in straight water hung to dry and aided the drying with a leaf blower made them twice as fluffy not flat like the others! I was amazed by the amount of crude that came off of them, and how much it fluffed up the under fur! Needless to say im sold!

I have to get a wash machine to do my work clothes I'm in road construction, Once my old one died and I took it apart and it had a sidewalks worth of concrete and sand in it figured its time to get a cheap one to not wreck the new good one. Do any of the muddy pelts

I am new to this so it might sound stupid, but you wash them after fleshing right? Sorry but had to ask.

You can take your hides and wash them in Wool Lite after getting the mud and gunk off of them and it will really make the fur stand up on them

I had a washer and dryer in my shed past couple years, took them both out, I can wash fur by hand in my slop sink then snap,, blow dry,, then flesh. The dryer never did impress me, with no heat it was a waste of electricty, besides I needed the room, and I dont put up mountains of fur.
