Re: OT: Formaldehyde treatment

From: RYFigge@aol.com

Formaldehyde seems a little severe, wouldn't chlorox do?  Maybe they are not
aware of that - and maybe a chemist or biologist could give you the
relationship of the two - try Bill Shear ((sorry, Bill , to put you on the
spot1)  I know my husband used a solution of "fixatives" including
formaldehyde to preserve specimens and certain tissues in his scientific work
- also (he was the Head of the Anatomy Dept. at the U of Maryland Med. Sch.)
it was used to preserve  the cadavers for dissection , so perhaps some funeral
director could help you out.  It would certainly give him/her a jolt to get
such a question and an interesting  and usual topic of conversation among
his/her (is "their" passable grammar here?) peers.   Rosalie, near Baltimore
