question about homemade brain tanned buckskins

(1/4) > >>

Flyerman:
i recall reading somewhere that brain tanned leathers can be put in an ordinary washing machine to be cleaned. is this true?

i dont know if a washing machine would do a skin any good but i doubt a skin would do your washing machine any good at all. lots of membrane and fat and meat on there.

I believe the question refers to buckskins that are already finished. ;)

Yes it can be washed but must be wrung out and dried by air immediatley and with some leather conditioner. Only commercialy produced leather you dont have to worry about as much because of the chemicals in it.
