Guys you can miss out the soda crystals if you want it helps as a degreaser so just boil for a little longer.

We dont have fire ants in the UK, wish we did I got a use for them an it aint eating meat, well not dead anyways LOL.

I thought cotton wool might cause confusion but I can't remember what you guys; sorry your girls call it. The girls use it here to remove makeup, its the white fluffy stuff they squirt cream onto. Here you go! My staff just looked it up in a dictionary (Googled it) and I think you call it cotton ball? Does this ring any bells?

Good luck

Yup that's it.

That's why Eli Whitney (inventor of the cotton gin) couldn't reproduce-Cotton Balls;)

An easier method is to just cut all the hide off and soak it in a weak peroxide solution for a couple of weeks. Everything but the bone and antlers will get very soft and be easy to pull off. The peroxide keeps the smell down & anything nasty from growing in the water.

The product isn't bleached white, but its not yellow either.
