I would like to try and compare a few bleach and fix methods for E6 but don't want to waste a whole roll of film on my first experiments. The tests would be carried out over a week or more so the film can't just stay in a water bath all that time. Is it possible to wash and dry slide film after the CD step, keep it in dark and dry storage until I continue with the bleach&fix steps? Or would it degrade over time, rendering my comparison useless? If so, how much time do I have? Are there any ways to stabilize it between CD and bleach step?
