    Hi,

    I got an original kodak photo chamois and i left it on the table after helping a friend to wipe his negative. But my sister mistook it for a table cloth and used it to wipe the table. When i realized it, the whole cloth is soaking wet. I washed it in warm water and soaked it in a container with water and some sodium bicarbonate. But anyone has any idea how to dry it without damaging the cloth. I like the cloth alot since i used it when i started photography till now though i know there are other available chamois outside in the market easily available.

    Thanks for any helpful reply in advance.

    If used on a negative, it is not to be dried:

    Yup, but i tried wiping it with the chamois dry, it works and doesn't leaves scratches. I have the same instruction on my kodak paper envalope as well.

    Thanks for all those who reply.
