The Yearly Bath of Lenin's Embalmed Body
For some very disturbing viewing: check out Charonboat's online photo show of Lenin's preserved corpse being given its yearly bath in the Moscow Mausoleum which has publicly housed it since 1924. Apparently, the formula for the bath is a mixture of formaldehyde, methanol and ethanol. Note: Not pretty.
Thanks, Kriszta, for alerting me to this.
