    ok fellas, ive been searching through all of the old posts and still dont have a good answer for my problem...i have a whitetail skull that i degreased for about 3 weeks, then took out and whitened...well, when i whitened it, i guess i put it too close to my heat lamp. on the back of the skull it is yellowed....i have it in the degreaser again, and its been there for about a week with no sign of it going away....i whitened it again and still yellow....i have a bucket heater in the degreaser also...thanks in advance...heres a pic of what im working with.

    just good old fashioned..................GREASE. Add some ammonia to your degreasing solution.

    yep.....make sure your degreasing solution is well above the back part of skull ..Dont want the top grease table sitting on the skull..

    im using dawn/ammonia to degrease right now...how long do you think it'll take to get it out? apparently the heated 40 volume peroxide cooked the grease in there...im pulling my hair out about this right now lol

    don't looked cooked in to me...looks almost oozing. Some are worse than others. The only answer to "how long it will take"?........until it is gone. There is no textbook answer.
