    Soak in 10% formalin for 48 hours, and either inject it into the body or cut an incision to make sure it gets inside. Then rinse it off thoroughly and keep in a sealed container of alcohol

    Not 100% positive but I think with only alcohol it'll still decay over time, albeit very slowly. Whereas formalin stabilizes the tissue. You can buy it online pretty easily, even pre-diluted on some websites
