I use xylene recycling pads from Creative Waste on my H&E stainer. There are different size pads you can order to fit the containers of different stainers. The pads contains little beads (which I assume are some sort of dessicant) that remove stain, alcohol, and water from the xylene. We change the xylenes once a week (whereas we were changing them daily previously). I was told we could go much longer without changing, but I'm being conservative for now. We will probably increase the time between changes. I've been using these pads for about a month and we've had no problems.
I am not associated with Creative Waste in any way, and if you would like to contact them their number is (888) 795-8300. They are located in Oregon.

Subject: [Histonet] humidity
A few weeks a ago, Histonet has been discussed humidity cause smear or bloody eosin stain. Somebody suggested leaving a mesh or stone in alcohol and xylene can avoid the bloody eosin stain. Can anyone tell me again where can I get this mesh? Thanks a lot.
