RE: [Histonet] contamination/molds


We put them in a big metal bowl with deionized water and regular lab soap and boil them for a while.  Let the water cool off and the paraffin solidifies on the surface of the water.  Rinse thoroughly and either air dry or put them in the oven.
It's always a good idea to stir the molds while they're boiling to release any air or paraffin trapped under molds that are upside down.  Good luck.
