Using Van Dyke's Degreaser


Van Dyke's Degreaser effectively degreases fatty skinned animals, fish and birds. It also works great for removing blood as well as deodorizing and cleaning feathers and skins.

It is designed to work at optimum performance at 7 to 1 ratio. Mix 1 part degreaser to 7 parts water (allows greater surface area absorption). After using 7 to 1 mixture, cover and add 1 capful of disinfectant per mixed gallon (to avoid bacterial growth). Never use the degreaser in a cast iron tank or container.

Degreasing and Cleaning:

Birds: Immerse birds, fur, or hair in mixture and agitate for 30 seconds. Let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour, then rinse with clear water.

Fish: Trout, Salmon and all oily fish - Immerse in mixture overnight.

Blood: Spray to saturate area. Work soft brush though heavy stains or wipe with a soft cloth to transfer excess.

Oil or Blood on Leather:

Wet area with mixture, then blot with clean white cloth and blow dry on warm temperature. We suggest the use of a leather conditioner after cleaning.

Mildew: Spray to saturate area. Work soft brush though heavy stains or wipe with a soft cloth to transfer excess.

Van Dyke's Degreaser mixture heated to 120 degrees Fahrenheit will penetrate and speed up the process of emulsion. (Do not use heated mixture on fish or any other specimen subject to heat).

Van Dyke's Degreaser will separate from contaminates if allowed to sit. Skim, filter, or drain off spoiled layer. Reuse remainder and repeat process. When Van Dyke's Degreaser is no longer active, oils will stay in solution.
