If xylene is recycled properly and has no alcohol residues, i should not pose any problems. It will "clear" just like the original "pure" xylene, at least that is what I found with my recycled xylene for more than 10 years.
The problem you describe should have a different cause.

Subject: [Histonet] Recycled Xylene on Tissue Processor

Has anyone that uses recycled xylene on the tissue processor ever noticed that it dries out the biopsies (specifically GI bx's)??  We are having issues with the GI's being dried out, and I'm wondering if this may be the cause.
