Hi! This might be a dumb question, I'm kinda new to this. anyway, I found some deer bones out in the woods and was wondering what I'll need to do to clean them. There is no tissue on them as far as I can see, and they were scattered around the area so it seems like they've been out there for a while. I do plan on sanitizing them with hydrogen peroxide, but should I degrease them first? Thanks!
not a dumb question!
i’d suggest to give them a good wash in warm water and mild, natural dish soap and let them dry. If you see white powdery areas or very dark areas they might need to be degreased.
for degreasing i generally just give them a soak in very soapy (mrs. Meyers is my favorite) water for about two days and then scrub them down and let them dry again.
hope that helps
