    Making Buckskin

    Hydrated lime (powdered lime sold in almost any garden store) is another great way to swell the hide to dehair it. 2 liters of powdered lime in 15 gal water. You cannot put too much - the water just won't absorb it. As a bonus, there is almost no smell at all! I forgot about my last hide and left it in the bucket for a month and a half. It was still fine!
