Re: [Histonet] slippery floor

From:Rene J Buesa

The problem is the concrete because it has small irregularities where the paraffin gets trapped, specially after trying to eliminate it with paraffin solvents (the dissolved paraffin gets trapped in the irregularities).
  So the alcohol or the xylene does not make the tissue slippery, but the paraffin/xylene mixture that gets inside all the floor irregularities.
  You will have to totally eliminate the paraffin and its mixtures to eliminate this problem.

  Hi histopeeps!

Do the common histo reagents/chemicals such as ethyl alcohol and xylene makes the floor slippery when you accidentally spilled them? I usually blame the paraffin wax as the culprit, though we do housekeeping before and after work.
Our floor is made up of painted concrete pavement.
Any solutions to remove the slippery thing before our QA will accidentally butt-kiss the floor.

Thanx guys for all your help!
