Water seeps into the cracks between the panels causing the paper based substrate to swell. Your move.

I put down a drop cloth first and just wrap the body and the fluids in it before I bury it way out in the woods.

It's more true you *shouldn't* use liquid, at least not a lot of it. And certainly not gasoline. Don't let liquid stand and seep into joints.

I hate blood in my ice cream. I will still lick it up, but I will not enjoy it.

This is also the best (and incredibly cheap) way to clean granite counter tops. Vinegar smell lasts about two minutes, so not a problem.

You just have to learn to read Windchaserese, like the rest of us.

Here's the process I've found that works well with minimal long-term damage:

1. drop a mist of spray-cleaner, like 409, from 1-2 feet above, onto a 5x5 foot area.
2. wipe off with damp mop. Sponge-on-a-stick mops shoud be squeezed out as much as possible so there's minimal water in it
3. go back to step-1 on the next 5x5 foot section.

The trick is to use strong cleaners with low-volume (both cleaner and water-rinse). The 409 from the spray-bottle works much better than floor-cleaner diluted in bucket of water. So much, much less of it is needed and you won't risk excess fluid dripping into the cracks and expanding the cardboard.
