Histomount - Stuck!!! - (Oct/25/2011 )

We have been using histomount to mount stained sections..... however, the lid has become stuck shut! Does anyone know of any way to open it or is the whole bottle lost now?

Many thanks!


I've never had this problem, but my guess would be to use some xylene to dissolve the solidified mounting media


heat the top of the bottle a bit.
