What say you? Should I even consider it?
First, don't lick your fingers while tying with the raw fur. You don't know what can be carried on wild animals. Use a dampened sponge in a dish.
You can also hand wash the hair with some gentle soap and warm water. You will surprised at how much dirt comes out of the fur.
