[Histonet] APTS Coating of Microscope Slides

Back when I was a lad I coated all of my own slides using APTS, or (3-Aminopropyl)trimethoxysilane.
It worked pretty well at keeping sections on the slides.  We have been using Superfrost Plus charged slides for a while now, but it is costing us about $500.00 per month just in slides. 
Can anyone think of a reason I ought not to go back to just coating my own slides?  Will the coated slides themselves change color over time, interfere with my stains, etc?
I do mostly Movat Pentachrome stains and IHC.
