RE: Floors in Histology

From:Gayle Callis

Put small industrial floor carpets with black rubber backing in front of
these areas, the kind you see in entrances of buildings, $54 for a 4 X 5
ft, and just use a small vacuum cleaner to pick up wax shavings.  Not
worried about trashing a rug, it isn't Martha Stewart "nice", but it works,
no one slips and wax stays off floor.  Chairs roll over surface without a
glitch. Sometimes a janitor cleans them (once every 5 years or so!).
