    I'm new to this really and I have a colony of Beatles once the skull is cleaned what is the best way to degrease them after it's the only step I don't think I'm getting right. Thanks for the help

    Use the "Advanced Search" on here and target only "Skulls and Skeletons. Tons of info on here of the different methods folks use. Try a term like Degreasing or Degreasing Skulls for starters. If you are beetling clean, try soaking in cool water for 24 hours first to leach out any blood. Might have to change out the water a couple of times if there is a lot of it. The best method is what works best for you. I normally soak in heated water with Dawn detergent in it but it is not the only way.
