    Hi all, just back from Namibia. Does anyone know the best way to clean up Warthog tusks.

    Never cleaned warthog tusks, but I've had a couple from boar. All I did was give them a good (but gentle) scrub in washing up liquid and warm water, then filled the cavity with clear silicon once they were completely dry

    I guess you could use peroxide if you wanted to get them pearly white? (or Colgate? )

    use caustic soda and a toothbrush and like wood smoke says silicon the cavity

    No disrespect to the previous poster, but I wouldn't use caustic soda on the tusks. It will damage the enamel on the teeth.

    Warm soapy water and a nail brush should do the job. Bleaching them is also not advisable as this will take away any natural colour. Filling them afterwards with silicone is fine.

    Why change their appearance?
    As with antlers, they look better natural.
