mounting with glycerol

From:Susan Travers

We have always used xylene miscible mountants like permount and 
cytoseal, but now need to use a water based mountant. Glycerol 
actually works best for our purpose.  However, we are getting small 
air bubbles. Is there any trick to cure this. I though that slightly 
heating the coverslips might work.

Also, if the coverslips are sealed with nail polish, would it be safe 
to store them upright in a slide box.

thanks for any comments
