Q: I bought the snow goose kit to try out taxidermy for the first time! I was wondering if you use the preservative that was included with the as a degreaser or just a powder to soak up blood as your skinning and defleshing? Or do I need to get something else for a degreaser?
A: Preservative is very handy for adding "grip" when your skinning and defatting the skin. As far as a degreaser, I recommend 360 Degreaser from Authentic Taxidermy Supply. Been using it for years and it works very well.
