Ten Tips For Possum Fur Storage & Maintenance
  • Regularly brush your possum fur gently with a metal bristle comb to keep it untangled 
  • Iron the fur with brown paper between fur and iron to give the fur lift and shine (also lightly brush the fur surface with a mix of petrol and water to give the fur renewed shine - yes I know this sounds crazy but just use a tiny amount - a furrier told me this!)
  • Store fur in a cool dry place away from sunlight - if possible avoid humidity, heat and sunlight
  • Do not put your possum fur throw/blanket into a plastic bag; it needs to be able to breathe. Instead use a loose weave cotton bag with plenty of room to move or wrap your fur throw loosely in an old but clean cotton sheet
  • Do not use those plastic storage bags that you suck the air out with a vacuum cleaner – they will crush the fur and leather & suffocate the fur making it sweat
  • Do not store in a cupboard with mothballs – the fur and leather may absorb the smell and this smell will be very hard to remove
  • Do not allow the leather under the fur to get wet – so make sure the storage location is away from all possible leaks & moisture
  • Do not put other objects on top of the stored fur – remember we are trying to keep air circulation at all times
  • Store away from kitchens or other activities that create smells that can absorb into the fur over time
  • When the fur throw or blanket comes out of storage give it a good vigorous shake to fluff up the fur and if needed air it out in fresh air but avoid direct sunlight
