Regarding dipping blocks in paraffin before storage:

It is my understanding that this is an antiquated  process, that is also quite
time-consuming.  A properly fixed and processed block should have no problem in
storage.  I would also think that a poorly fixed and/or poorly processed block
is a problem regardless what means you go by to store it.  We quit dipping
blocks over twenty years ago and have seen no problems.
