Lipa-Solv 55 is a highly concentrated surfactant-based degreaser that can be used as a re-wetting agent in the rehydration bath or as a stand-alone product in a degreasing bath. This product is both biodegradable and tough on grease and fat, yet gentle on hair.
Rehydration Instructions: Lipa-Solv 55
- For best results, use warm water that does not exceed 90 degrees.
- To make a gallon of the solution, add ¼ lb of salt and 1 oz of Lipa-Solve 55. For a natural bactericide, add 1 oz of citric acid per gallon. Commercial bactericides can be used according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- Keep the skin(s) submerged in the solution only for as long as necessary to rehydrate. The time needed will vary depending on how long the skin has been dry. It takes 4-8 hours for an average deer, but as long as 12 hours or overnight for a skin that has dried hard.
- Once rehydration is complete, the skin must go into the pickle solution.
