What's the best way to preserve a skull, without bleaching?
My grandpa found this deer skull way out in the back of a golf course (he works there) and brought it home for me. I don't mind leaving the color the way it is, I just wonder, what is the best way to clean/disinfect the skull? I want it to be nice and clean (worried about bugs eating away at the bone) before I coat it with polyurethane. Does soaking it in a hydrogen peroxide & water mixture for a few hours clean up any bugs, without altering the color too much? Thank you for your input.
