    I have a small button WT that im decreasing now. I had it degrading for about 3 weeks then one day when I changed the water I noticed it had turned green. I don't know if I used to much or if it was the brand of soap. I degraded it with water for a while and it didn't get any better so I have been using water and blue dawn for the last 2 weeks or so, it hasn't gotten any better. What do you think I should do to get it white?

    I had a WT that turned blue around the antlers where the water line was. What I did was to just soak it in plain water with NO SOAP for a couple of weeks. Eventually all of the blue color came out.

    You may have just used too much soap - I think that's what happened in my case.

    Green, I was using green soap. I don't remember the brand but it wasn't dawn.

    I get colors sometimes depending on the color of the soap, Switch to clear dawn or just plain water and it goes away

    Has happened before with blue Dawn. I got a couple of pastel blue skulls and the others were fine. It's why you use clear.

    I have had it in just water and the green has ever so slightly gone away.

    Have you tried a peroxide soak yet?
