Tanning leather. Urine is full of urea, which degrades into ammonia.
Ammonia in water acts as a caustic but weak base. Its high pH breaks down organic material, making urine the perfect substance for ancients to use in softening and tanning animal hides. Soaking animal skins in urine also made it easier for leather workers to remove hair and bits of flesh from the skin.

What have you sold from your homestead or plan to sell?


I don't currently have a homestead but yrs back my 6 little chicks hobby for y2k turned into 36 chickens breeding hobby.
my family did eat the eggs n meat, so that was a great plus.
in doing the math back then the cost of buying the chicks, then later the incubator and the feed/straw didn't net any savings or income compared to what I would of spent at the store.

but to answer the original question at least from my point of view.
I did make extra/saved money from this hobby in:
1. I sold the feathers to other crafty people and sold the extra eggs.
2. I got rid of a pest problem with out having to pay some company to spray chemicals around every 6months.
3. I never had to pull/spray for weeds in my yard
4. I didn't have to by any extra mulch or fertilizer for the rest of my yard.

but what I gained over and beyond anything else was the experience of having fun, learning new things, teaching and sharing with my children and meeting new people who did buy the feathers n extra eggs. and that was all priceless.
