Best way to clean elk teeth

After pulling them...I boil them to help clean off all the gunk and then I put them in my pants pockets and let the pocket liner polish them......comes out looking good. I think I kept them in my pocket for a good couple weeks.

Best way to clean elk teeth

I'm a little late in posting, but I put my elk ivories in a shot glass of Coke. (Just enough to cover the ivories.) Yes Soak for 12 hrs, remove and rinse with clear water. Then I tote them in my pants pocket for a couple of weeks. Best method I've found yet.
