Hides that are already mounted can be sprayed with OdorXit solution to
eliminate odors. Mix OdorXit 1:16 or 2 ounces per quart of water and spray
it on the hide, hair and horns to wet the area that has the problem. Brush
it into the hair and hide and let it dry.
Depending on the animal and the amount of odor, you may have to treat
the mount more than once to eliminate the entire odor. When the odor is
deep in the hide, it takes a step by step approach with progressive levels
of aggressive treatment to eliminate the odor. OdorXit must come in contact
with the odor causing agent in the hide to make it stop smelling. Even repeated
superficial treatments will not solve this problem.
On stubborn hides, you may want to mix OdorXit with hide softener or surfactant
(available from Authentic Taxidermy 1-800-264-1801). This will help the
OdorXit penetrate the hide and get to where is smelling. Start with a
solution of 1 part OdorXit, 1 part Surfactant and 20 parts water. Do not
mix more than you will use in 1 day.
