Dermestid beetles are used by museums and researchers for animal skulls because they do a through job without hurting even fragile bones.
Our degreasing method never uses heat** because we have seen the results: bone shrinkage, pitting, flakey or pastry white surface and open suture joints. 99% of our work is degreased with acetone.
For over 20 years we've cleaned large and small animals of an incredible variety. Each one was important to us, representing a customer's trust in our ability to preserve a valued specimen of God's creation.
