[Histonet] iron hematoxylins

I've never blued after a Weigert iron hematoxylin stain. Nuclei are either
black, or they aren't. If they are not, then the iron hematoxylin is old
(more than a couple days old), and putting the tissue into an alkali
solution won't bring the color back.

I'm curious, why are you bluing? What is the purpose? Maybe then I can help.
