  • How do you clean your buckskin??

    I'm working on a buckskin dress that is 30 years old and I'm combing it with sandpaper to clean it.

    I'm wondering how y'all care for your buckskin dresses/leggins/mocs, whatever.

    What do you do for dirt, how do you store it..anything you'd like to share.
    Instead of telling God how big your storm is, tell your storm how big your God is!

    I use a white clay ball on my leggings. We used to use white corn meal and just work it into the buckskin.(this was a lot of work). If the skin is to ever get hard or brittal you might try to use mink oil on the inside. Don't overdo the oil. I make sure the skins are dry before I put them away. When I do put them away I roll up my leggings and the girls hang up their dresses. Our mocs are just put into the suitcase. The girls roll their mocs up.
