I soak my stuff in DI water with approx. 5 mL of fabric softener added
and well mixed. This works for all kinds of tissues. I've used weak
NH4 before, but only for very hard things, like cartilage and toenails.
I found that if I soak these in a decal solution, it works even better.
Because of the recommendations some on this list have made to soak in
ice water, I have tried that, but I like the fabric softener solution
best of all for the tissues that must be soaked.
just my 2 pennies worth
