spit

Before you tie the guinea in, rub spit on the barbs and separate them. Rub little more. Your spit has a little bit of digestive enzymes that will break enough of the barbules that it wont like to stick back together.

Doesn't work without scotch! This trick works on duck flanks too, I just stick the feather in my mouth and then rub with and against the grain, back and forth until it's dried/separated... I don't usually worry about it anymore though as the water does a good job of it too!

I like to strip one side as well some times. lastly, as you wrap, really use the other hand to brush the fibres backwards, as you wrap, this helps too.
