The subject of formalin neutralization is mixed up with trade secrets
and bureaucratic nonsense. John Kiernan posted a useful note about
ammonia ten years ago:
and there is further useful material in our archives.

Sodium bisulfite can also be used and is more convenient to handle,
but I don't know what the reaction formula is or how much to use. Does
anyone know?
