What I do with old smears is :
  To place the smears in a Fisiologic solution for , at least 10 minutes,
and then re-fixation in  95% alcohol, after that you can stian the smean
with the technicque you want.
Good luck!

were dip into methanol for several times and were stained in Giemsa satin to
indetify macrophages. The result shows that almost holf of the cells in the
smears have broken and leak out their cytosol and nucleus contents.
