I have used, not only fast, but very "clean". We do this stain almost daily.

Wow... that is REAALY short compared to my stain.  I do one from the AFIP
manual that incubates 30 min. in the oven then a short developing step over
a steaming water bath.  I don't do very many of these, but I have never
found them to be difficult.  Please post your method.  thanks!
