Cleaning Macaw Tail Feathers

1. Veniard’s do a product called “Venpol” designed for degreasing skins and the like.My comment:
It sounds like re-labeled Synthrapol which is a product used to degrease wool and cloth prior to dyeing. My guess is that Synthrapol is cheaper, but, to each their own. I have a little bit of Synthrapol available somewhere if someone wants to buy it.

When I clean feathers, I use Dawn dish soap, plus a squirt of Windex, and a lot of cold water with a ton of rinsing! It works great.
