clean my mountain goat hide

I've got a nice shoulder mount that is turning grey with dirt and age. Is there a good cleaner that I can use to make it snowy white again?

I use a very light vacuum with the bristle brush attachment for hides. Followed up with a lightly damp washcloth. Don't get it too wet.

My taxidermist told me to use a horse spray on brush out conditioner or super shine or something along those lines. I have not needed to yet but the supershine sales note says that it is good for when you can't bathe the animal. Check with a taxidermist for their best recomendation.

Every few years its worth it to take it into a taxidermist for a good cleaning. Around here there are several that do it for under $100 including very minor repairs and touch ups.
