[If you use Bleach, use no more than a 1/8 cup, Bleach can compromise bone.
It would be better to use Peroxide as well as the bleach, Peroxide cost a little more but it's safer on the bone..
I will be posting complete instructions SOON please bear with me, it's hunting season.. LOL

boil yes bleach NO..Everyone has heard of bleaching a skull what that means is leaving a skull out in the sun year round ,think steer skull in the desert.To make a skull white ,assuming you have picked ,cut and boiled off all the meat,including eyeballs and brains,pause im eating a sandwich right now.ok so you've boiled all the meat off (do it outside and dont use your wifes good stew pot)take the skull and put it back in the pot fill 2/3rds of the way with water the other1/3 with peroxide let it cooktake out of pot put in sun ,bingo "bleached skull.right now i got one cooking but i really prefer the bug be told later,like i said im eating

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

i have always used bleach and have never had a problem with it. It has never ate the skull or made it fragile or anything. Like bruce said i dont use much. And peroxide is more expensive i hear. I just use bleach.
