Yes..... to remove mounting media you need to leave them in the Xylene
after the coverslip is removed. If the mounting media is not totally
removed your stain, whatever one you are doing, will not give you the
results you need.

If I want to remove a cover slip that is coversliped with permount.  Do
I need to use xylene to get rid of the semi hardened permount gunk?

Also,  If I am heating paraffin sectioned slides overnight at 37C to
adhere them what happens if I over cook them by leaving them at 37C for
more than one day?

Say 3-4 days at 37C  It probably wont hurt them as they haven't been
epitope retrieved yet.
