I'm RayAnne, I am 17! I'm about to be a senior in high school and that means the rest of my life is about to begin. Still don't know how I feel about this.

How I clean my bones

What you will need

1. 5 gallon bucket

2. Smaller vessel

3. Lots of hydrogen peroxide

4. Rubber gloves

5. Breathing mask

6.Manure / potting soil

7. Strainer

8. Poking stick

9. News paper or towel

1. The first step is to find out if the animal your scavenging does not have an owner or is legal to collect .

2. Then once decided you need to see if its fresh or dried out . If its fresh I suggest that you obtain a five gallon bucket (if its small ) a bag of dirt or manure .

3. I then bury the body in the bucket to keep all the bones in one place and its good because it also allows you to relocate the decomposing creature if the smell is causing problems or if you have to move.

4. You should wait a few months before you go back and dig out and collect all the bones in the bucket. When its hot out the decomposition is faster than when it’s cold out.

5. this step would be the first step if the body is dried out.
Now you need to get a vessel for your bones . Then submerge the bones into hydrogen peroxide.

6. After a couple of weeks of changing / cycling the the liquid once a week until the hydrogen at the end of the week is clear . I suggest using a strainer during this process so that you don’t lose any bones when dumping the liquid.

7. Once it’s decided that the bones are clean rinse them off with water

8. Then get a flat surface and put down news paper and lay down the bones and let them dry for a day in the sun light .

9. Now your finished! You can ether put the leftover dirt in the garden or on the grass and now your done . :) I hope your happy with you bones. If there’s any questions about my process then fill free to message me. This is my process and it has worked well for me so I’m sharing my opinion and am not saying this is the only way to do it. :)
