Forgot to mount slides after H&E, are they safe? - (Oct/24/2011 )

Hi, last Friday I did some H&E staining. Came back today (Monday) only to realize I forgot to mount them!

Stupid me... are they still usable...?

Yeah I feel pretty stupid right now...

What was the last step you did with them before you left?

They should be fine, most H&E stains are dehydrated post mounting, so they are normally OK.
