Doesn't Hummason's Histotechnique manual have this in it?  Not attacking, just trying to provide a helpful reference!

After Eosin:

10 - 15 seconds in distillate water
Quick steps for 50, 75, 95%  ETOH (they remove Eosin)
About 20 - 30 seconds for 100% ETOH ( for each step of two. You could stop
longer in this alcohol than the other ones above)

Pay attention!!! That procedure is coming from me: an amateur naturalist.
I think it would be better for you to lissen the opinions of the "guru"
Histologysts of this ML too!!!

Best Regards,
