I remeber seeing a thread that talked about this, but I couldn't find anything in a search.

 

What is the prep technique on this?

you could always go to a craft store and buy some shells. They should be good as long as they do not have any kind of chemicals , and stuff on it.

Yes you're right.

 

Caution. Boiling water is probably pretty hot.

That'll just make your house stink like them.

 

Put them outside in a bucket for a couple weeks.

A couple weeks? They're stinky shells, not a dead body.

Well I kinda assumed someone would be able to realize that if they didn't stink anymore that a waiting period would be over. Forgive me, I'll go put out some shells and time it down to the minute of when it stops stinking. However I must advise that my findings will probably be skewed by temperature and time of year, also I assume humidity as well as location and other weather factors will factor into my estimation.

 

sorry, my bad.
