Yes, they can be left overnight in 95% alcohol before staining.  We do at times and have not had any report of altered quality.

Can pap slides be left in 95% alcohol overnight to be stained the next
morning without affecting the quality of the slides? Or should they be
moved to xylene then run back prior to staining?
