Cleans, freshens, deodorizes and restores shine to all tanned animal skins. Non-toxic, antibacterial, inhibits mould and mildew. A must have for any cowhide rug owner. You need this cowhide cleaner in your cupboard before the dog, cat or a child has an accident!!!

Don't let the dirt set! If you own a cowhide rug you need this cleaning product in your cupboard BEFORE an accident or spill happens. The sooner you can treat a spill the more likely it is that you can rescue your valuable cowhide rug.

The bottle comes with a secure cap (secured by tape to prevent spills during shipping) and a separate spray nozzle that you screw on before you use the cleaning product.

Finally here is a product that will help you to clean and deodorize your cowhide rug? This product is designed for the general cleaning and freshening of tanned cowhide rugs. We recommend that you clean them every 3-6 months to keep them looking like new. Removing microscopic dirt and grit will reduce the wear and tear on you rug. The cowhide cleaner is designed to be safe for the hair AND the leather. It is non-toxic, environmentally safe and can be used with septic systems and grey water outlets.

This animal hide cleaner will also help to rescue your beautiful cowhide in case of spills and accidents that we know do happen. This antibacterial cowhide cleaner is perfect to clean up after animals or children have been sick, pee'ed or had diarrhoea on your cow skin, cowhide ottoman, calfskin, deerskin or any other tanned animal skin.

Cowhide general cleaning

Use this cowhide cleaner to solve these cleaning problems:-

  • Dust, dirt, mud and general grime on a cowhide rug
  • Red wine or orange juice spills on cowhide rugs
  • Food spills, chocolate sauce, jam, peanut butter, squashed fruit and other food on cowhide rugs
  • Oil, grease and fat, spaghetti bolognese sauce, tomato sauce, asian cooking sauces
  • Dog or cat urine or excrement (poo) on cowhide rugs
  • Dog, cat or child throw-up on cowhide rugs
  • Cowhide rugs that children have drawn on with coloring-in markers or crayons
  • Makeup on a cowhide (don't ask us how makeup gets down there!)
  • Cowhide rugs that have been caught in a flood and are wet and dirty

Use this cowhide cleaner on these items:-

  • Cowhide rugs
  • Cowhide covered ottomans and furniture
  • Cowhide patchwork rugs
  • Calfskin rugs
  • Goatskin rugs
  • Reindeer skins
  • Deer skins like red deer or fallow deer

Do NOT use this on fur like possum fur or fur coats as we have not yet tested it on these things and don't know what will happen. This is for hair not fur (which is very different).

So how do you clean a cowhide rug? For common spills or accidents like red wine, coffee, tea, juice, food, soup, cat or dog urine, faeces and vomit - soak up or wipe up spills with a paper towel or sponge as soon as possible. Remove any solid matter (like cat vomit) with the blunt edge of knife by scraping gently in the direction of the hair. Try not to push nasty accidents deeper into the leather. The Gorgeous Creatures cowhide cleaner is antibacterial.

Lightly spray your cowhide rug with the Gorgeous Creatures cowhide cleaner treating a small area at a time, complete one section before starting the next. Wipe the cowhide vigorously in any direction with a damp (but not wet) clean cloth. Do not soak the hide or get it too wet. Rinse the cloth in fresh water and wipe again to remove any residual cleaning solution until clean. Repeat if necessary until clean.

Wipe the whole hide with a clean dry towel to remove as much moisture as possible. Dry the cowhide flat and slowly away from direct heat and sun.  
Our cowhide cleaner is not a stain remover which is why it is so important to treat spills immediately. Don't let spills sit on the cowhide surface and dry.
