Yesterday I found a really old deer skull in a forest and I took it home in the hope to get it cleaned up. So I searched it up but I only saw how to clean up dead deer heads with skin on and those who are already white almost. But I could not do the same because the one I found was old....Really old...It did not have any skin whatsoever and its antlers where gone.

It misses half its teeth. And it's super green...So can I use hydrogen peroxide like usual or something else to whiten it up or at least something that takes away the germs? Or should I throw it back into the forest?

Hydrogen peroxide or a light bleach solution will work. Another good way is leaving it outside in direct sunlight for a month or two.
