  1. 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.

    give it a wash with soap and water and then decide
    Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

    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.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    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.
