Default Smelly hares mask.

I have a hares mask that smell quite strong of chemicals. Should I throw it out? Other hares mask don't smell this strongly. Was going to use it for custom hares ear.

Or antibacterial dish detergent. Or non-perfumed shampoo. Or one of each.

Dawn is the best, they use it on animals all the time. I will also dry them with a hair dryer.

The smell could also be rotting flesh still left on the skin. Scrape it off and then wash it

If that don't work whrow it out and get another one

I cut most of the hairs of the mask and made dubbing. Took a jar and filled it with a little vinegar and water and blended it together. The chemical smell is gone.
