Hello histonetters,

I stained some murine skin sections for toluidine blue, and mast cells were
very easy to detect, however, after a few days the staining seemed to have
faded. Following the tol blue staining, I briefly put the sections in
alcohol (95%, 100%, 100%), then in xylene substitute, then air dryed and
mounted with mounting media. What did I do wrong? I am very new
at histology, so forgive my simple question...
