Care Instructions for Your Cow Hide

To remove any dirt, brush along the nap (in the direction of the hair, not backwards) using a bristle comb or horse brush.  To clean spills or extra dirty areas, use a very small amount of shampoo on a damp sponge.  Sponge along the nap repeatedly.  Rinse the sponge to remove the shampoo and dirt and repeat until the hide is cleaned.  Dry using a towel running along the nap.
