Trophy Cleaning Instructions

Body/Hair: For all trophies, it is best to remove dust by blowing off with an air nozzle connected to an air compressor. For short haired animals, it is best to blow in the direction of the hair. For long haired animals, blow against the hair to fluff. For extremely long haired animals, such as Bears, after blowing against the grain of the hair, finely touch up with a wired brush, such as a rounded dog slicker (dog brush). Do not run the brush to the skin: only place the hair in place with the brush.

Eyes: For the eyes, take a Qtip and dip it into Windex. Make sure the Qtip is only moist and not dripping; it should be just slightly damp. Wipe the eye gently, making sure you only touch the glass and not the skin, and let dry.

Horns: As for the horns, we find it best for African, and/or black horned animals to use WD40. For North American and/or brown horned animals, use Pledge. Spray on clean rag and wipe the horn clean.

Of course we are always here to answer any questions you may have, feel free to contact us.

Any tips/tricks for feathers?
I've been known to discretely borrow a sable makeup brush from the medicine cabinet, but that can come with a sharp rebuke if caught.

Any hints for skulls that seem to be really dry, and is it ok to glue loose teeth in with a hot glue gun?

Thanks

Some time ago had delivered a few jugs of the Mount Medix products, (delivery to Canada no problem). Mount Protector, Mount Saver as well as some Mount Saver horn and hoof. Maybe get some Mount glue additive for next batch of mounting. Followed all instructions on bottles/jugs and applied to all mounts. Seams to work very well so far and small price to pay to keep all mounts looking good and just mounted. No long term report yet as its only been used for 6 months. Smells nice and permeates rooms with nice smell, bugs do not like it. Kills them dead.

Well its been a few months. I have no investment, association or affiliations with Mount Medix products but I must say I am sold. Applied as I stated back in Aug 2019 and just redid all mounts with the protector product. No bugs, adds a nice mild smell to mounts and I see no negative issues. Am now using in taxidermist shop I "volunteer" in. Adds a big level of bug proofing safety.

Excellent product, easy to use, reasonable price and WORKS.
