I use 20% volume peroxide straight out of the bottle. Submerse the skull in it for 24 hours and then let it dry in the sun for a few days. Always gets them super white. Make sure you degrease the skull before bleaching though. For greasy skulls get a professional degreaser from the catalogs. You can get the peroxide in any beauty supply store. Comes in quarts or gallon bottles.
I wouldn't recommend bleach, it can eat away the bone. I purchased 40% volume H2O2(hydrogen peroxide)from the salon, they sold it to me for cost, my wife is a regular. I called a skull cleaning business, they recommended 13% H2O2, so I diluted it accordingly. Good Luck.
forgot to mention, use gloves when handling the H2O2!
