Take a tub and fill it with at least 8'' of water and put approximately 3 pours of Clorox bleach (depending on how bad your shells stink). Then start laying in shells. Usually I'd leave them in overnight, but since I'm doing it during the day, a good 6-8 hours should clean these up. Take them out of the solution when the time is up, rinse, let them dry, and you're done! If you want to give them a display shine you can put a few dabs of mineral oil on them.
