Hello Histonetters

I need to bleach melanin out of some paraffin sections. The only bleaching
solution I have is a 3% H2O2.  I know you can bleach melanin in a 10% H2O2
solution for 1 to 2 days. How long do you think it will take to bleach the
section in a 3% solution? Of course everyone wants it yesterday or I could
order the K permanganate and oxalic acid I really need. Any suggestions
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
