Mix 35%(strength) hydrogen peroxide with magnezium carbonate. Go with
a 60/40 mixture. You will only want to mix about 1/2 to 3/4 cup, it doesn't take much. Get a paint brush and paint this solution on. After it dries take a tooth brush or other stiff soft brissel brush and brush the dust of. It should be white after one application. I did have to do this twice once on a stained skull. But it came out beautiful. Good luck.
