I have no idea how to do this, i have copied the email i got from my friend and pasted it below.
Anyone have any experience of how to preserve/prep?
Many thanks

We had to remove the horns from our ram today but I have kept them. They are very grubby and a bit smelly with some blood on the end. I would like to keep them, no idea what to do with them yet, perhaps get someone to craft them into a stick handle or something. Presumably before I can do any of those things I need to get them cleaned up and preserved somehow? What should I do to them to make them clean?

Thanks

Richard

A Little dawn and water . Brush the insides and rinse clean then let them dry out. Fill them up with borax when dry to absorb stink. That has always worked for me with slimy horns..
