Subject:[Histonet] Pre-floating tissue sections in dilute alcohol

Hi everyone,

I just became aware of this technique last week, and it seems to work great.
I did a quick google search and found this quick reference.
Anyone out there float their sections in dilute ethyl alcohol before transferring to the water bath?
Its an extra step and introduces an extra chance to introduce floaters.
But, the quality seems to be improved.
Any thoughts?  

Thanks in advance.
