xylene problems

From:Rafael Badalyan

Dear Histonetters,
I would like to ask you a question about clearing the slides. I am staining them with Masson trichrome and when I try to clear colored slides wtih xylene (aftre alcohole) the colors are becoming very dark (even black) .
Can I do not clear them with xylene, but mount after  dehydrating in alcohol?
Please help, I am first time in staining.
Thanks in advance ,
