Dreaded Buffalo Rug Curling

If you are not a PETA person, then you as an outdoorsman possibly own an animal skin rug. In my opinion, they look and feel cool, but the edges frequently curl. They still look cool, but those curling edges.....they are a danger to anyone walking across them. Incredibly easy thing to trip over, they can even be a huge liability to you when you entertain. But they still look (and feel) cool!

Remember there really was no such thing readily available to the public 30 years ago. Next question--do you believe everything you read online? Of course you don't! Well, animal rug curling edges is one thing I researched where EVERYONE said exactly the same thing and IT REALLY WORKS!

The uncurling method is simple. Moisten both sides of the skin (not fur) thoroughly, then lay something rigid and non-porous underneath to protect the floor from moisture. Then place a paper towel directly under the skin. Lay the rug flat and then add another paper towel and several heavy books for a topping. Allow to simmer overnight then remove all. Perfect uncurled animal rug!

Do not know yet how long the rug will remain uncurled, but hoping for the best--like forever.

Hard takes and tight lines forever. Come and fly fish Idaho soon.
