I have used the following QuickHyb solution (BRL's recipe) 
for a long time with great success on colony blots and 
southerns.  I typically do a 1 hr. prehyb followed by 2 hr. 
hyb.  for colony blots.  Works great!

I hyb southerns a little longer, >4 hrs.

QuickHyb Recipe: I usually make up about 100mls then aliquot 
into 10-12 ml tubes and freeze.

6x SSC 

5x Denhardt's Solution 

0.5% SDS 

100ug/ml SS DNA
