The embalmer might need to massage the body's limbs if its still stiff from rigor mortis. Cotton may be used to make the mouth look more natural, if the deceased doesn't have teeth. Mouths are sewn shut from the inside. Eyes are dried and plastic is kept under the eyelids to maintain a natural shape.
A: The mouth can be closed by suture or by using a device that involves placing two small tacks (one anchored in the mandible and the other in the maxilla) in the jaw. The tacks have wires that are then twisted together to hold the mouth closed. This is almost always done because, when relaxed, the mouth stays open.
If seen from the point of view of science, then science says that whenever a person dies, many types of liquid come out of the open parts of his body. Which is quite smelly and cotton is used to soak it.
If a body is left untreated at room temperature, it will deteriorate quickly, so at the funeral parlour it will be put into a refrigerated unit until the death is registered. Then, with the family's permission, the body can be embalmed.
We plug cotton in the nostrils of a dead body because the respiration process stops and the air present in the surrounding enters the body, as a result the body gets swollen. We also plug cotton to intercept the germs from coming out from the dead body.
Typically, the onset of rigor is first observed 2 to 6 hours following death and develops over the first 12 hours. The onset begins with the muscles of the face and then spreads to all of the muscles during the next 4 to 6 hours.
By 50 years in, your tissues will have liquefied and disappeared, leaving behind mummified skin and tendons. Eventually these too will disintegrate, and after 80 years in that coffin, your bones will crack as the soft collagen inside them deteriorates, leaving nothing but the brittle mineral frame behind.
Open eyes at death may be interpreted as an indication that the deceased is fearful of the future, presumably because of past behaviors.
Originally Answered: Do spirits attend their own funeral? Yes, I feel they do attend, a few might be over/under-whelmed by the number of people in attendance, but in most part, they do attend when it's possible.
A set is a group of repetitions (an example would be 3 sets of 12 repetitions).
Answers to your 30-degree wash questions No, a 30ºC wash is generally considered a warm wash. A cold wash is below 20°C and is usually reserved for clothes that are very delicate. Washing at 40ºC is also considered a warm wash, while 60ºC is a hot wash and 90ºC is a very hot wash.
