We soak our molds in Xylene for @ 2hrs, then soak in 100% alcohol for @ 30 minutes( with occasional stirring to clear the xylene), then rinse in H2O, let dry(laid out) and spray with the mold release.

Dear Fellow Histo Techs,
What is the BEST practice for cleaning the paraffin block tissue molds?  We do not want to use our processor due to its age and wear and tear and frequent replacement of cellanoids when we clean them via the processor.
Thanks so much for your help! In advance.
Lisa Kennedy, HT (ASCP)
