Re: wrinkled brains - HELP!

From:Barbara Stancel <>

Andi,  I used to use the double waterbath method.  First lay the paraffin 
ribbon on the surface of a container of room temperature water & alcohol. I 
used water and absolute alcohol (75:25 or less 85:15) because it was 
available, other grades will probably work.  Using a glass slide, pick up 
the desired section and ease it slowly on to your warm water bath. The 
surface tension between the alcohol and waterbath really helps easy out the 
wrinkles.  Best of Luck!
