cleaning a skull

Submitted by Michael Spencer on 12/29/00. ( )

Hello friends! I pruchased some Sal Soda for cleaning up skulls but do not know if I should be using this solution on skulls that have just been skinned out. In other words do I have to let the bugs eat it down first before I use the stuff or can I place a skull with all the meat still on it in the boiling water? Any thoughts?

Mike just skinn out the head and cut as much meat and membrane then mix up a sal soda solution and boil for about 30 min.Than scrape the rest of the meat off or if you have a power washer power wash it off.


Yep boil it

There are complete instructions in one of the WASCO books.

But trim as much meat off as you can and cook it. I prefer a temp of arounf 170 F it does as good as hard boiling and does not tend to over
cook the skull. You may have to keep a check on it and scarp some from time to time. JOhn C
