Removing Blood from Fur

A simple method to remove dried blood is to rub in Borax. This may take two rubbings.

Blood around mouth was wiped down after skun'n.
After boarding and drying fur, blood can be removed...


Place Borax on dried blood and rub it in, comb it out...


Not bad, but let's rub in more Borax...


Perfect, the second rub and combing...

Re: Removing Blood from Fur

what about the critters you have fur in? or does it not matter

The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Re: Removing Blood from Fur

I got hides out of the freezer tonight too and got beam set up. Borax is great stuff for putting up canines, I rub it on the front legs, flesh side, when I turn hides fur out. I read that you shouldn't ever use it on coon flesh? As for blood, I think borax works like the Oxiclean they advertise on tv....don't know how it works...but it works.

RH asks-

Coon, Possum & Skunk can be treated this way if you want.
Personally, I like to have all my pelts cleaned & combed with a uniform look.
