If you think the chemicals are bad, take a look at the little instructional paper that usually accompanies a box of mouth formers if you use Kelco. The directions look stamped on by a plate that I'm pretty sure hasn't been changed for at least half a century.

kelco product names are so on point though

I just went through 6 pages of your asks and didn't see this exact question so apologies if you've actually been asked it 20 times and I look like a douche. If one goes to mortuary school, is it possible to get a job in a funeral home where you just embalm and don't actually work in the people/service side of the industry? I know you don't embalm but I thought you might have a bit of knowledge about this.

nah I don’t think you’re a “douche”, just somebody who didn’t delve deep enough into the asks :p

in short, yes, it’s called trade embalming if you work for yourself and embalm for multiple funeral homes, but some funeral homes would have you embalm just for them and do nothing else.

embalming products have the worst graphic design these days. all the old products look super cool, but if you tried to date the above products by their labels, you’d never guess 2014

I didn't mean to ask the same question twice. I'm sorry. I usually use my phone and sometimes it doesn't send, and since it had been awhile and you didn't answer, I thought it might have not gone through.

I remember you saying you had a hatred of standing floral arrangements, I too dislike them and think they're tacky. I was wondering if you ever get weirdly shaped standing sprays? Where I live it's pretty common to have sports team logos shaped out of flowers.

lol that’s crazy…I haven’t seen those. do those show up at funerals or you just generally see them at flower shops?

but yes, standing sprays are the worst with regards to the funeral industry…they’re hard to move, they leak a lot of times, and they’re horrible to transport to the cemetery because the stands are so big. and the stands are always metal with like unfinished edges, so they can scratch the interior of a hearse or flower car really easily.
