cutting on waterbath

From:"P. Emry"

I have been taught to take the ribbon from the microtome, float it on the
water bath and cut out the sections I want with the edges of two slides.

The slides I have been getting seem to have edges that stick to the ribbon
rather than just cutting it and releasing the two sections to float on the

Since I only trained in one lab, I don't know if there are other ways of
doing this or other things to use so I don't have to pull the ribbon off
the edge of the slide(s). Is there a way of treating the edges of the
slides so they release the ribbon?

Thanks for your time.
