I've seen labs that do this, like 30C for 24 hours, but if you use xylene,
make sure to put the oven under a hood.

It's a lot easier just to leave them out, in a well ventilated place, for
48hours.  Buy more slide folders/trays.

I worked one place where the slides were held for 24 hours before being
given to the paths, because they were concerned about being exposed to
xylene fumes. But that lab/hospital system had no competition within 100
miles and didn't care about turn around times.
