Skull cleaning??

I saw this on here before but it didnt come up in the search. I am looking to have a bear skull cleaned, either boil and bleach or beetle dont care. Any recommendations in Pa around Northampton/Lehigh county?

Re: Skull cleaning??

Stay clear of anyone that actually uses bleach for the whitening process. Bleach can make the bone brittle and flaky. Sorry cant give you any recommendations in your neck of the woods.

I agree, the guy that did mine charged the same. Sending it out is worth worth every penny...no work, mess, or smell on your end.
