I have quite a number of Ilford MG FB prints that I printed and selenium-toned in make-shift darkrooms up to 30 years ago, and they are fine. Now, I have a dedicated darkroom, but my prints stain as soon as I put them in the toner. The procedure I am currently following is: Ilford MG paper developer Tetenal Indicet stop bath Ilford Rapid fixer (1 minute only) Rinse, running water, 5 minutes Water bath hold until end of session Wash in running water 45 min Ilford Washaid Kodak Selenium toner ...and then I would wash archivally if only the d**n things didn't stain. I have seen Ilford's recommended archival wash sequence, which involves using toner diluted with washaid straight after the fixer. I am hesitant to try this, because (a) I understand it makes the toner essentially a one-shot bath; and (b) I can't see that why it would be an improvement on what I am already doing. I have read a lot of older threads here and elsewhere, and folk seem to divide into two camps over this (have problems, can't explain, or no problems ever). Does anyone have any chemical insights that might help me here? Thanks in anticipation.
