Turtle Shell Mount ..Question

I have a bug cleaned shell of a snapping turtle. The shell has some "aroma" and I wanted toclean it before I polyeurathane the shell.
Should i clean it with soap and water and then pressure wash OR.... clean it with thinner and a stiff brush an then pressure wash??? Is there another way to clean the shell before coating with polyeurathane?

Thanks in advance!
