My furst collar
« Reply #76 on: March 25, 2006, 10:53:37 am »
Confession time: I have a collar too. ':blush:' I wear it out sometimes, and I love being led around by it. It was originally part of a Halloween costume, but after the night was over I couldn't bear to part with the ears, tail, or collar. My boyfriend has the ears and tail (it was a cat costume; not my style but very much his) but I kept the collar. I love it because it's comfy and has a little tag with my favorite nickname on it.

Anyway, with that out of the way... do any of you feel hampered or, well, domesticated at all by your collars? I'm not sure how many of you feel (for lack of a better word) feral, but it's kind of surprising to see the number of tigers and wolves in here praising their neckwear. I'm not trying to get all up in anyone's Kool-Aid like my friend Genocide here, just wondering. You say it feels right to you, and I'm not at all suggesting that it shouldn't, but do you think it makes you feel more or less, er... humanized?
When attacked in the night by your avalanche life
As you fight for your breath in the questioning sea
What is real turns to sand and it slips through your hands
It pours to the floor; it sighs as it lands

mmmm, Kool-aid.....*drools*

More or less humanized? Well i'd have to say less. At least to "normal" human standards. Humans aren't supposed to wear collars. Or are they? >.>

I'd say I feel a bit more feral at times. Diffenetly different though. I kinda do feel demesticated. Never been leashed though. I'm waiting for my mate to do that.

I guess in some ways the point of wearing a collar is showing submission or servitude or domestication. For me, that has become the point, to remind myself that I'm not in control and aren't the one deciding where to be led, less so much as a sheep but more a kitty, one that doesn't particularly like being made to do things, but it is a very handy reminder of my relationship with God that I'm trying to revive.

I can assume you should every now and then. But if it's leather, best to stay away from doing that. However, there shouldn't be a problem with washing nylon collars.
I guess it all depends on how often you wear it. Like me, I wear mine all the time except for at work and when I shower.
As far as the washing process, i'd spray it with bleach, or another cleaning spray like 409, and let it soak into the colar, then run it under water and wash all he chemicals out. Air drying would be best.
You could always toss it in the washing machine though.

for leather collars, you should wash them with saddle soap, and then oil them with either boot oil, or mink oil (if you have no qualms against using animal products '<img'> )  With mink oil, you get better results, but it has a strong smell, and you will have to wait a few hours for it to dry before you wear it again. boot oil dries quicker, and has less smell.  work it into the leather just like you would work lotion/cream into your skin.  you can also wash leather goods with mild, unscented soap.  be careful with dyed collars though, you might cause the color to bleed.  If your collar is one of the black leather types like is sold at hot topic, or those other gothic stores...I dont know if oiling them would be best, since that tends to be try tanned leather.. in that case, care for them in the same way that you do leather sneakers.

Tigey's right about nylon collars, but I wouldnt use bleach on them...it will remove the color, and posibly weaken the material.  409, or regular hand soap should work fine, unless its really dirty.

Leather collars will get smooth and shiny on the inside after a long time of wear. its called 'glazing' and its normal...doesnt mean that its dirty.

hope that helps you out!!

OMG XD  *rofl* That's great.

*gains composure*
Well, I wouldn't really say my collar makes me feel domesticated or hampered, but it definitely does make me feel less humanized when I'm wearing it.  I haven't been leashed yet, though.  Don't know if I would like that.  Guess I'm just a free spirit. '<img'>

That's a really neat analogy, Opalance.  I like that.  '<img'>
