  • fish scales (เกล็ดปลา)

  • Rinse under running water.
  • Soak the scales in 5% white vinegar for 2-3 days, which will help acid cook any tissue that remains attached to the scales.
  • After soaking in vinegar, wash the scales thoroughly, ensuring that all organic material has been completely removed.
