[Annelida] Dried material

Dear Elena and worm lovers,

A colleague working with insects told me that a good method to rehydrate 
dried samples consists on using a few drops (or even only one, depending 
on the size of the animal) of a common dish washing soap mixed with 
distilled water. The sample must be monitored very close, as the soap 
may destroy the most delicate tissues. I have not yet used that method, 
although I will try soon, as I also have an old, dried sample and the OK 
from the museum curator.

I will let you know the results as soon as done, but if you decide to 
try first, please, share the results too ;-) .
