    1. Wood ashes, especially in combination with lime, is used for removing deer hair from the hide. In traditional methods, the hide is often buried under the ground, along with a mixture of ashes and lime, until the hair softens and falls out. It also makes the hide basic, so it needs to be washed with an acid to neutralize it. Here’s a website that explains how to tan deer hides: [external link]

    2. this isn’t really a botany question…Well, I’ve never tanned a deer hide, but I imagine that’s what you’re after here. Wood ashes are fairly rich in sodium oxides, and when you run water through them, they’ll make sodium hydroxide and other alkali metal hydroxides (lye). This is how wood ashes were once used to make soaps. Not a clean way to produce crude lye, but it would work. Something this basic would help to eat away the hair and tan the hide. I suppose that’s what they’re attempting to do when they do this.
