Woops it's early I forgot one important step... we also use a very thin
layer of elmer's school glue on the slide for adherence... has some
background staining but it's negligible.  We also do GMS on these slides.

We also frequently cut toenails for PAS Staining among others.... we use the
liquid dial handsoap from our handwashing area mixed with very little water
to make a paste consistency and soak the block in that for about 20 minutes
and then cut at our workstations... works like a charm and doesn't affect
