| Odors produced by Horns are often difficult but not impossible to eliminate.
The problem is that they are thick and often have a large amount of odor
producing material inside and in the horn material itself. In many cases
the horns are already glued onto a form base that makes getting to the odor
source much more difficult. Eliminating the odor in un mounted horns is
just a matter of soaking them in a normal 1:30 solution of OdorXit and water
for a few hours. Make sure that the horns are positioned so that the OdorXit
can get into the cavity inside the horn. After soaking, allow the horns
to dry completely. Check carefully for remaining odor and, if necessary,
repeat the process. It's much easier to fix the problem now than later.
Eliminating the odor in mounted horns can be a much more difficult process.
Start with OdorXit diluted 1:16 with water, and spray the exterior of the
horns . If repeated spraying eliminates the odor, all is well. However,
it is possible that you will be the need to treat the interior of the horn
Treating the interior of the horns requires that you drill several small
holes in each horn (1/16" or less depending on the syringe you have available)
. Using a large (100-200ml) syringe, inject OdorXit diluted 1:16 with water
into the horns. Remember, you need a place for the air the OdorXit displaced
to escape. Injecting 100 ml of OdorXit solution into each horn should be
enough to do the job. But, depending on the size of the horns and the amount
of odor causing material inside, you may have to repeat this treatment.
