A colleague of mine just got a box of cores in the mail from a collaborator where about half the samples are mounted incorrectly — the cell alignment is wrong.  They were mounted with Elmer's white wood glue which I think is water soluble. I vaguely remember that a soak will loosen the glue and he can remount them the right way. Any tips out there I can give him?

Many thanks,
