I bought Neutra Guard, I don't remember from whom.  It was so iritating to
my throat, eyes and nose that I thought formalin might be better.  I
sprayed it around where formalin was used and have had a hard time getting
it washed off.  It didn't come off with clearing agent either.  I went
back to formalex for surface clean-up.  I also have gotten the lab to use
a formalin substitute.
