Step 1: Wash the body with palm oil and water from the river. 

Step 2: Pull out the brains through the nostrils using a hook. Fill the skull with sawdust and resin.

Step 5: After 40 days, remove the natron and pack the body with straw, dried grass or linen.

Step 6: Wrap the body in linen fabric, adding amulets and a Book of the Dead.
