    how secure is the beadwork on it? you can try throwing it in the washing machine , no soap, no softener, no bleach.. you get the idea... otherwise, man, strawberries stain really good. Thats why they got used for dying things pink. Oh and don't throw it in the dryer either...

        You're gonna laugh, but I used my
        sis-in -law's skin cleanser. Worked really well. I used that and a wash cloth on and goit out some orange kool aid stains. Only problem is that the leather did streatch some. , but that was ok for me.

          just be prepared in case it does'nt take out the stain but possibly the beadwork get's ruined. Let me suggest that you put it in a small cloth bag first or pillow case, something you can tie off or rubberband, so that the beads dont' get knocked around as much and if the beads do get knocked off, then they dont' go down the drain on ya

            by mousequeen19
            Hello everyone!

            I have a beautiful white buckskin jacket that has absorbed some red dye on the collar. I've been researching how to clean buckskin, first trying a pumice stone which worked a little, but not enough. Then I tried spot cleaning a portion of it with a cold, damp cloth and...

            When buckskin isn't realbuckskin!
            by VIP4life
            I've noticed lately that some northern buckskin dresses aren't all buckskin. Most of there skirts are made of canvas or ultra suede. Now you put all that work in to it why not make the whole thing with real hides. It must make it light without the hides but still. What do you guys think?New...
