Cleaner for de-haired cowhide

Choosing a suitable cleaner for the de-haired cowhide is an important aspect of caring for this type of leather. A suitable cleaning agent must be pH neutral and non-ionic. The leather should also be stored in a cool and dry place to ensure that it doesn’t taint. For better results, it is recommended that the leather is cleaned and dried outside. To get the best results, you can purchase a de-hiring cleaner from a shoe store or cobbler.


First, the hide must be completely hair free. If you plan to use the hide for tanning, it is important to remove the hair. A single hide may not be sufficient to do this task. To remedy this problem, you can try the method of pre-tanning the hide with an egg. The process involves applying a tanning agent that is made from the yolk of one or two eggs and a small amount of water. You can mix the mixture using a sponge or pastry brush. Afterward, you should cover the hide with a damp sheet made from natural fibers. You should change the water frequently as it will get dirty.


If you’re thinking of buying a cowhide couch or chair, one of the first steps you need to take is to brush the hair off the hide. The hair is an integral part of the hide’s unique beauty and gives it an antique feel. It also adds a vintage touch to the piece, as each hide is unique with unique color patterns, lengths, and natural markings. It also keeps the hide’s durability and luster.

Cleaning with a de-limer solution

There are a few ways to clean cowhides. To begin, you should make a solution of de-limer and Lactic Acid. Mix these ingredients together in ten gallons of soft water. Next, place the de-haired skins into the solution. Allow them to sit in the solution for four to six hours. Once the skins are completely de-haired, they’re ready to use in tanning or pickling solutions.
