Eosin to Identify Tissues

Hello all:
Has anyone tried a small amount of eosin (i.e. approx. 1cc in the first
alcohol bath of the tissue processor) to mark tissues so they are easily
seen in the block?  What is the "down side" of this practice? How does is
differ from using Mercurochrome?

Thank you very much.
