Problem with phenol

Is there anyone who can tell me about the kind of phenol that should be 
used for isolating genomic DNA from mouse tails. Is there some kind of 
time tested special method to buffer the phenol?

And I have been trying to bring down the pH of phenol (to be used in DNA 
isolation) with several washes of 0.1 M Tris-Cl, without any success. I 
have done almost 7 washes with 0.1 M Tris-Cl. I am following the 
protocol given in the Maniatis Lab mannual. If someone can suggest a 
solution it will be great! 

Thank you,
