    You can always try using a wet pillowcase, and then putting the snake back in the enclosure for an hour. I usually just repeat the soaking the following day and the gets rid of anything that sticks around.

    Cause when push comes to shove you taste what you're made of
    You might bend, till you break cause its all you can take
    On your knees you look up decide you've had enough
    You get mad you get strong wipe your hands shake it off
    Then you Stand

    Re: Bad shed? No problem.

    Yup. Sorry for not clarifying that a bit more. I've had sick kids which means little sleep for me, and I'm barely coherent on good days.

    I've always had the above method work, even if it's taken two days, but I've heard of great success with the wet pillowcases too.

    It's best to do what is outlined here after a bad shed.

    1.0 Bunny Rabbit... William, aka Bill the Bunny, aka Bill-Bo

    It's probably just me be freaky about wording, but this is not about bathing. This is just one means to remove a bad shed, so you should not soak beforehand. I will wait a day or two after the shed has occurred, and there is a significant amount of that shed that is retained. Hope that helps.
