Cotton can be used at many different stages of the embalming and preparation process, and it has many uses. This simple, durable material has been used for centuries to help properly prepare a body for a funeral, and it is still used today. Soft and gentle yet also thick and absorbent, cotton can be used to help seal openings and incisions, make sure the eyelids are properly closed and supported, or absorb chemicals and fluids. Add a pack of non-sterile cotton to your funeral home supplies, or order several packs to ensure you don’t run out. Find this and all your other funeral home supplies, embalming supplies, safety equipment and more online at National Funeral Supplies.
