I read that if you store B-gal histochemically stained Xenopus tissues in 
clearing solutions that the blue stain will fade over a few days(Methods 
in Cell Biology 1991 Volume 36, Chapter 20 pg 372, by Peter D. Vize et al).
I've found that the best thing to do is store my samples in methanol both 
before and after I look at them/ photograph them.  

Good Luck
