I own a arctic fox mount that at one time was snow white, not so much anymore , now it looks more like a cross fox. Any ideas on clean and whiten up this critter.

Try a little bleach and warm soapy water on a cloth , try a small spot that may not be seen and see what happens . I don't think it will hurt it ,,,,,

I have a white weasel done in a snow scene (done around 20 years).Still looks as if it was done yesterday.The only reason it looks like that is I've kept it in a glass case,Also have a hooded maganser(duck) also done in a snow scene,again in a glass case--------still looks great(also done around 20 years ago).

I would call a taxidermist and see what he would do.
