Hi Caroline,

This may sound a little crazy,

but I was working on some mummified tissue back in the 80's, (Mommy is old), and to deal with the dried out tissue we would give them,

1. A quick .5 percent Sodium Hydroxide soak, 5minutes

2. Wash is running water, 1 minute

3. Soak in a 3 parts water 1 part Downey, yes Downey. 5 minutes

4. Step up to a 1/2 water, 1/2 Downey soak for 5- 10 minutes.

5. Wash with running water 2-3 minutes.

Proscess your tissue as you usually would.

They came out pretty darn good.
