    How do you keep them from turning yellow over time?

    They are in a smoke free home
    But some are still starting to turn yellow after 5-6 years

    Thanks in advance

    What do you use to make them white in the first place? I have some that I have done back in 2003 and they are still white without any yellow color in it. I do all of mine by myself. When I boil them I use dish soap and then after they are picked clean I use a mixture of peroxide and water. I believe it is 2 parts water to 1 part peroxide. None of mine have turned yellow.

    I heard if people use bleach to make them white they will turn yellow but idk for sure.

    They yellow from not being degreased probably. I boil them after picked clean in dawn let them dry then use the whitener power and peroxide paste never had a problem.

    They didn’t degrease them.
    You can put them in hot water with dawn. Dont boil just get it real hot. Let it sit in there for 30 or so minutes. I’ll get mine just to a boil and cut the gas off and put the skull in.
