How to Get Rid of Cowhide Stink

If you’ve ever had a cowhide rug, then you’ve likely noticed that it stinks. The smell of cowhide is very similar to that of a new car. If you can’t live without the smell, you can try hanging your cowhide outside, keeping the windows open, or buying a carpet deodorizer. Don’t wash your cowhide rug! This will only make it worse.

Lesser quality cowhides

The cowhide has its own distinct smell. Your tolerance for it will depend on your own personal taste. Some people have a higher tolerance for cowhide smell than others. It also varies with temperature and air humidity. If you have sensitive skin, hang your cowhide outdoors to air it out. If you’re allergic to the smell, avoid purchasing cowhide that has been tanned. Alternatively, you can buy a cowhide from a quality manufacturer who will treat your cowhide with care.

Cheaper cowhides

While cheaper cowhides may look more attractive, they will most likely stink! While it’s true that cows smell bad, cowhide is a natural product and will stink – just like any leather product. If you don’t mind the smell, buy good quality cowhide that has been treated to make it odorless. The quality of the hide will determine how long it lasts.

Cowhide rugs

Cowhide rugs tend to smell. If you notice that your cowhide rug is starting to smell, here are some tips to get rid of that nasty smell. First, you need to dry the rug outside, preferably in the sun, to remove the smell. Once it’s dry, sprinkle it with baking soda and allow it to sit for 24 hours. You can then vacuum it up to get rid of the baking soda. Alternatively, you can use a dull knife to scrape off the food from the rug. Another good way to get rid of the smell is to apply a solution of water and vinegar to the stain. This will help balance the pH and remove the smell.

Tricolor rugs

Cowhide rugs have a distinct smell that is similar to a new car’s leather interior. If you can’t stand the smell, try hanging the cowhide outside for a few days or keep the windows open while it’s drying. If all else fails, you can use a carpet deodorizer, but don’t wash it! You don’t want to ruin the natural smell of the cowhide, so here are some ideas that will keep it smelling fresh:

Exotic cowhides

If you’re concerned about the smell of exotic cowhides, it’s best to find a general cleaning product. There are two types of cleaning products: vegetable and synthetic. Vegetable tanning takes about six months to complete, while synthetic tanning is faster, but is more harmful to the environment. If you want to prevent the odor, you should try out synthetic cleaning products. Exotic cowhides are an excellent choice for rugs and upholstery, but you should beware of the smell.
