    I have beetles and I just was wondering the best way to degrease. I usually do hot water and dish soap. I also have an issue of teeth falling out of the skulls during this process. Any pointers on how to keep them in? I hate putting teeth back in skulls especially when I'm doing 20 mink at a time. Thankyou

    You want the teeth to fall out, The tissue holding them in has to go. Place eace skull in it's own plastic bag with your liquid, it will still warm through. Or each skull in a glass mason/ball jar, warm them in the jars.

    I put the small skulls in panty hose so everything stays together. But Like Low T said, The teeth should fall out.
