Make sure that moisture does not get on the skin under the fur. Wash off the soap solution with plain water. Dry with cotton pads. Shake the fur and go over it with a comb with rare teeth. Shake again and let dry.

Alcohol and vinegar

To remove adhering dust and greasy dirt, moisten a cotton pad with medical alcohol and walk along the villi against, and then in the direction of their growth. Wipe with a dry cloth or cotton swab.

You can replace medical alcohol with vinegar or use a mixture of them. Combine in equal proportions acetic acid, water and ethanol. Walk along the pile with a cotton swab dipped in a working solution, wiping with a dry cloth. Alcohol and vinegar dry the pile, so after the procedure, lubricate the silver fox fur with glycerin so that it regains its former shine. Shake, comb and dry the fur.

Gasoline and Talc

Yellowness and hard-to-remove spots from the fur are removed with purified gasoline in pure form and in mixtures. Get it at a hardware store, and not from gas stations.

  • Method number 1. Moisten a cotton pad with gasoline and run along the pile.
  • Method number 2. Add talcum powder to gas until gruel is obtained.Apply the mixture on the fur and leave to dry completely under natural conditions. Use a soft brush to comb out the loose substance.

In the room where you worked with gasoline, open the window. After the procedure, shake the fur and send it to fresh air for ventilation.

  • Hydrogen peroxide - 1 tablespoon.

Soak a napkin in the mixture and wipe the silver fox fur in the direction of hair growth. Do not rinse the solution. If you dry the product in the sun, the effect will intensify.

Shake off the loose substance and carefully comb out the remains with a soft brush. Starch and flour successfully fight against yellowness and dirt. If yellowness remains after the procedure, repeat cleansing until stains are completely removed.
