Submitted by beerhunter on 1/26/02. ( )

I have a set of whitetail antlers that the customer left in a freezer that un thawed, One side of the antlers are stained with blood or rust cant really tell. I tried a few things but with no luck, Would I have luck peroxiding them white and re staining them? Thank for any help

How about soap and water.

Thats all it takes, soap water and the old ladies kitchen sink.

Peoxide will not help the antlers color. You may even want to use a SOS pad or BRILLO. no other subtitutes.

A freezer will defrost and the frozen foods will then thaw as the temp. rises, normally a deepfreezer will unthaw the minute it is plugged in.

try CLR

I think it's called CLR. It removes calcium and rust stains. I've used it to get rust stain out of bone before. It should be available at most hardware stores. I believe it's originally used for sinks and bathtubs. I would give it a try before I bleached the antlers.

Wash then paint

Wash with dawn then dry and then paint with brush paint thinned then wipe off the paint while wet with rag.
