Ideas and submissions
buying any hair or fur that is on the hide, the hide should be soft and
pliable. The hide should be scrapped clean of any residue.
When cleaning bear hair you can use warm water and Woolite or a mild dish washing liquid. Soak the bear hide in the soap and water solution at least thirty minutes. Agitate every so often during the process. Thoroughly rinse the hair with clean water. A final rinse using hair conditioner can help to rejuvenate the hair and add softness and luster. With a towel or paper towel, gently pat dry the hair to remove excess water. Comb or brush the bear hair with the natural flow. When air drying hides or skins you want to prevent them from shrinking or curling. You will need to use a method that allows air to circulate around and dry both sides of the hide or skins equally, such as tacking them to a frame. Air dry a couple days depending on the humidity in the air. After making sure the hide and hair are completely dry to prevent mold, comb them again and place in a sealed plastic bag for storage.
