    You can get cheap 3% in bulk and reuse it but it only works well if you use it for the second boil, 20 minutes and you are good.

    I second that! I actually find they turn out pretty white using 40 volume peroxide.

    Finished these two off with an 8 hour soak in 20 volume.

    I have found the boiling part to be far more important, two or three changes of water minimum. I add some laundry detergent to the first two pots and half a box of baking soda to the third.20191122_150908.jpg

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    If you can find it Arm & Hammer washing soda does a great job degreasing when boiling. I find I only have to boil them once for 1-11/2 hours and then after cleaning a rinse in clean boiling water. TC

    That's the good stuff! Even the liquid detergent works far better than dish soap.

    I have been cleaning skulls for over 25 years
    And The only thing I use is soda ash, I don’t think there are too many people that know about it.
    Soda Ash, commonly called Sal Soda, is used to dissolve meat, fat and grease when simmering skulls and antler plates. Simply add Soda Ash to simmering water and immerse the skull or antler plate
    Nothing else needed.

    Skull, where do you get the sal soda from? Is it something that can be picked up locally?

    I simmered a skull cap in oxiclean for a few hours last year. Oxiclean contains soda ash and sodium percarbonate (and other fillers). It worked really good.
