[Histonet] evaporating Xylene

I am a research tech and so don't do a run of slides every week.  I 
am about to get a full set-up for deparafining and staining.   What 
do other people do to reduce the xylenes from evaporating out from 
under the loose fitting glass lids?  Or is there a staining station 
with tight lids out there?  

		Any ideas appreciated, 

ps. Do the glass racks break often?  They are cheaper than the 
metal racks. Any tips on the pro's and con's?
