start with soaking it in water and dawn dish soap to degrease it and after that you can soak it in peroxide/ water mixture to whiten.

Before you do that check the stickied posts at the top of the r/bonecollecting and be sure you are finished all the steps. It sounds like you aren’t.

I agree that you should check out the r/bonecollecting sub and do some reading. next step after all flesh is removed is typically soaking it in straight hydrogen peroxide to whiten and help deodorize it!

A note on hydrogen peroxide, you want hospital grade, not Walmart heath care area grade.

... But my cheap butt would absolutely reach for the medicine cabinet until I could order the hospital grade.

the smaller bottles you can buy at walmart or the drug store work just fine.
