    Since it is a hobby for you, why don't you just try them? If you don't want to use one of your skulls, use a vertibra or a jaw bone...give it a shot...you're sure to learn as you go.

    You're new here, 1 post, so I'm going to show you something that'll keep you busy for weeks. They're called the Archives. If you type the words "Degreasing Skulls" in the search box on this site, you will find no less than 14 pages of threads that'll give you an education you didn't know you needed.

    Have fun, get something to drink, and read, read, read. ;) Good luck.

    Yep. Try "degreasing", "degreasing skulls", degreasing bone". No need to be buying expensive things when cheaper things work well and have passed the test of time and many projects. For more excitement, try searching for "whitening". :)
