Need some ideas on caring for that dried out Bearskin Rug? Find some helpful information from this article!
1. Purchase a conditioning oil from a taxidermist or a fur retailer. Select an oil or conditioning product that is safe to use on bear skin. Buy a bottle that has more than one application, because additional applications may be necessary on an extremely dried out rug.
2. Lay the rug flat with the skin side facing up. Apply the conditioning oil according to the manufacturer’s directions and allow it to soak into the skin. Apply an additional coat if necessary to make the skin supple again.
3. Inspect the skin side of the rug for cracks or tears. Small cracks and tears must be mended to prevent them from getting bigger.
4. Thread a needle with a thread that matches the color of the fur. Sew together the skin in torn areas, being careful to keep the skin even and smooth. Tie off the thread and cut the thread when you have finished sewing.
