water on our slides

From:"Horn, Hazel V" <HornHV@archildrens.org>

Hi all,
We are being driven crazy by water on our slides at the end of the staining
cycle with our linear stainer.    We have changed brands of xylene
substitute, alcohol, mounting media.   We have added more stations of
absolute.   We have changed slide manufacturers.   I'm beginning to wonder
about the humidity in the air.   We have a "cheap" little monitor and it
measures our humidity to be between 45 and 55%.    This started happening
about 2 months ago and now we are at a loss of what to try next.    Do you
think a dehumidifier would be the answer??    HELP!!!!!
