  I hope to get input from our vast group here on switching from pure ethanol/200 proof to 100% reagent grade alcohol.  The reagent grade is by RA, 90% ethyl, 5.5% methyl, and 4.5% isopropyl.  My main concern was for the dehydration properties of the reagent grade to the pure but, I feel confident that there will not be any real problems with our processing or the staining. I would welcome any feedback to your switch over experiences. Lastly, we do not use this alcohol to make any reagents, just in its original state.
