  To start, it would have been better if there would have been stored in a refrigerator (4║C).
  You do not need to rehydrate them, since methanol just fixed them (like a blood smear), so you can start by placing them in PBS.

  Hi all, I haven't done immunofluorescence on cultured cells before, and 
one of my colleagues would like me to do some - he's grown up the cells

stored at room temp for the past week. Prior to staining, do I have to 
rehydrate them with graded alcohols? or just rinse with PBS or 
Thanks! Melissa
