Help cleaning flocking

Postby FlyFishingFreak » Thu Oct 31, 2013 1:19 pm

What is the best way to clean flocking? I have quite a few flocked goose decoys and I think they look great but when they get dirty it doesn't look so great.

I'm also thinking about flocking my duck decoys because it looks so good, during the next off season of coarse.

What works for you to clean the flocking?

Warm water as soon as you get back from the trip. If the flock was applied correctly you can use soap and water with a rag and lightly wipe it off. I would suggest cleaning them at least rinsing them off as soon as you noticed any dirt in the flocking. Blood on the other hand is tough to get out. I just re flock over the spot if I cant wipe it off. I've heard that peroxide works well getting blood out, but I have not tried it.
