We recommend you salt your skins and drain overnight. This removes the fluids from the skin and makes much more receptive to the pickle bath. This Re-Wetter also increases the flow of the pickle into the skin, especially helpful when re-hydrating hard dry skins.
Rehydrate - For every gallon of warm water, (never over 90º) add: ¼ lb salt, 1-2 ozs TanZall Re-Wetter. Skins should be loose in the bucket and agitated a few times during the day. Soak until skins are relaxed.
NOTE: salt content in bath needs to be ½ lb per gallon for thick dry skins when leaving overnight.
