    I made a mistake and left a whitetail skull in my truck today, and when I realized it after work I noticed some grease/oil was showing back on parts of the skull. I am on a bit of a time crunch, but I'm worried I need to degrease again? Is there a simple way to solve this issue?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I need to have it back to my 'customer' within the week.

    Nope there isn't a quick fix. If grease is coming out just sitting in your truck, it needs to go back in the degreaser.

    Yep, a good degreaser (heated helps) and time. There really is no quick fix.

    Would you go to the Ammonia, or the Dawn bath here? I have been reading Sea Wolf and others posts about heated buckets and trying to parse out how to do this without starting a fire with my electrical abilities.

    All of that info is here in the archives if you search it out. Hell you can use a turkey roaster, not a fryer but an electric one with a temp control.

    That's not a bad idea, cost is relatively the same and with as little work as I have now I could manage with that space. I have trouble digging through the advanced search, but I am learning. Thanks so much for all of your advice, hopefully I can get this one done and back soon.
