Taking care and cleaning mounts?

Looking for the best way to take care of a fox mount I have and deer mounts. Cleaning tips and some tips to keep the nose and hide good over the years.

Vegetarians are cool All I eat are vegetarians except for the occasional mountain lion steak -Nugent

Windex on q tip rub eyes and nose. Keeps dust off and keeps it wet look. You can also put windex on paper towel for deer shoulder mounts and wipe with the hair. Fox mount I would just take in garage once a year and blow off.

I will second what fremont has said but will ad this ! To keep your mounts hide good keep them away from heat,such as a fire place or above a heat source such as a radiator or a heat register.
For the mounts with fine hair,i would use a hand held hair blow dryer,set on just air to blow the dust off.

I use a swiffer duster on mine. I hit them several times a year and it keeps them looking good.
